Every time I try to burn a disk it goes to initialize the disk at full speed, even when I say burn at 8x. The thing spins up and shakes the heck out of my macbook. I have made many coasters now and I think this thing is seriously flawed. I have tried different manufacturers of CD-R's with the same result. Looks like I'm headed into the dealer for a new Super Drive unless anyone has any suggestions for me to try. I am using Itunes to do it. Maybe that's the problem... any freeware I could try in it's place?
