    okaaay...on a macmini...... I'm going to burn a CD/DVD....right click on the folder I want to burn....menu opens up.."Burn to disc" click on that....window pops up "insert news disc to burn" ..I insert the unburned disc...and in 15-20 seconds it spits it out at me not even recognizing it's been inserted.....any thoughts as to whats up...(preferably without being a wise ass..lol)

    Thanx

    Like here. http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=71&name=CD-DVD-Blu-ray-Media
    Do you use TDK, Verbatim, ...; is the media a DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, CD-R, and so on?

    And what does it say in System Profiler > Hardware >> Disc Burning?

    Using Sony DVD-R.....and yes...disc burning is available...as I said...I've burned discs in the past.....now it just won't read the disc even being inserted on the prompt...is it a software glitch or a sending out for repair is what I'm wondering
    Thanx...
