    I found this thread:

    Its seems to suggest, I may have corrupted files, and a reinstall of os x would be need to correct the problem. There is any specific files I can reinstall? Any other ideas? The burns fail in Toaster and finder :(

    Here is my error log:
    Finder: Burn started, Wed Nov 3 20:39:31 2004

    Try repairing permissions. See if there are any updates to Toast (Roxio is what you mean by Toaster right? and if not, then whatever program you mean). Also, try setting your burn speed lower, to maybe 8x and see if it works.

    It could be cheap media.... but I dunno....

    Its not any of those things. I repair my permission automatically every month, and the problem happens in finder too as well as roxio. it an issue is with the driver interaction with the drive, and not cheap media. I have burned the same media with the same superdisc before.

    I guess you could start off of your most recent OS X disc and try to Verify or Repair the start up disc. Might be a rather long shot though.

    Does it read media perfectly? What about coping files from a CD or DVD to the hard drive?
