    Every time I burn a CD, it starts to burn and then the iMac makes a noise like a card running. Then the disk finishes abruptly and an error pops up on the screen "There was an error in burning the CD" I am running a Power PC GB iMac. Any ideas? I had been burning CD's fine before until this came up.

    will the drive read disks fine, and are all of the CDs you are using since it stopped working from the same package?

    My first guesses would be either the drive is bad or you got a package of defective CDs.

    The first few CDs worked and this is not a new Mac, it has been burning CDs for about 2 years. What would I have to do to replace the drive? Thanks for the imput
