    I was curious if anybody else has problems burning onto black CD-Rs.

    I have a pack of Memorex colored recordable cds. Red, blue, green, purple all worked fine. But when I insert a black one, the computer eventually spits it out and asks me to insert a blank recordable cd.

    1. Did I get a bad batch of cds? or is this a common problem?
    2. Do I have a racist computer? Is it surfing hate sites while I sleep?

    BTW - I have a 15" 2.4 GHz MBP

    4 of the 10 that the set came with.

    edit: ok, tried 2 more and tried to burn using itunes. Still no luck. (before I was using toast)

    Yep. It's definitely racist. Box it up and ship it to Texas.

    The same happened to me with the black CD-Rs and my MacBook. It just spits it back out. I don't know what to do!

    Yea, I just gave my 10 black cds away and bought some standard ugly gray ones. It sure is a weird problem. Shame it happened to you too, but glad to see I am not alone with the problem.

    Me too. Fscking irritating. Is there some patch I can get, someone I can complain to, anything I can do? If I take my MBP to an Apple store, are they just going to say "oh, sorry. buy other blank cds."?

    Ugh.
