    Hey all. I have a MacBook White (see sig) and for some reason it won't burn DVD DLs. Toast complains of a "medium" error, where the Finder complains of "laser insufficiency" or something. I google'd "MacBook/MacBook Pro SuperDrive Firmware Update" and it showed me a thread here detailing the MacBook model just before mine. Would that update work? Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Thanks in advance,
    ShiggyMiyamoto

    Anyone? Having an SD that can burn DVD DLs non functional is pretty sad and annoying...

    I've been using Memorex DVD+Rs, which are the DLs. My drive only has trouble burning those. All other media it burns fine...

    I only use Verbatim DVD+R DL on my macbook and have never had a problem burning these dual layer discs.
