    Hey everyone,

    This all started yesterday. For some reason, when I am transferring data from my computer to a drive of some sort, the drive is ejected automatically during the transfer and I get the "Disk Not Ejected" warning error. I do not know what would make this happen all of a sudden. It was happneing yesterday morning when I had Leopard and it is still happening now with Snow Leopard!

    Any help would be great!

    System Preferences - Energy Saver has an option to put the disks to sleep. See if toggling that option changes this behavior.

    You're obviously suffering from premature ejections. You should find that the problem goes away as your MacBook matures a bit.

    One thing I remember in my MacBook's early days, is to try to burn another disk again, pretty much as soon as your MacBook is ready to burn another. That usually cures the problem.

    ... couldn't resist.
