    i have a new 13 inch macbook pro running lion. i used a program called ripit to copy my movies onto my mac... i tried a couple different ways to burn the movies onto a dvd disk... each time i do it i put it in the dvd players in my house for them to say unknown disk but they work in m mac and on my ps3... I'm new to this stuff so I'm not sure what to do... also i have toast titanium 11 so idk if that can be useful

    Well try and post it in the laptop forums. This is real computing Mac Pros here - you know the big buggers?

    Lol. Yeah. Because that's different. Your Pro doesn't burn DVDs?

    OP - when you use toast, are you trying to re-encode the DVD video or just burning the ripped content (vidTS folder, etc.)?

    There are so many possible problems here it's hard to tell. One problem may be the DVD player itself will not recognize DVD-R or DVD+R or RW, or whatever media you happen to be using. You might be burning data discs instead of video discs.

    Burn Problems

    I have a simpler problem using (kiwi fruitware) Burn... It only works when one folder only is entered and only if the folder doesn't have subfolders within...
    Using MacBook Pro with Snow Leopard...
    Any ideas out there

    And laptops and iMacs using slot loaders suffer from a pretty high failure rate compared to desktops running tray loaders.
