what do yoz mean by dvd media? heres another screen shot after entering the dvd
DVD-media = what kind of DVD is it, is it a DVD-R, a DVD+R, is it a DVD+RW, is it a DVD-RW or is it a Single Layer DVD or a Dual Layer DVD
Since your Mac seems to recognise the DVD media, why do you not use Finder and its Burn Folder to burn the data onto the DVD? Or do you need Disk Utility or the unmentioned burning application?
