    I've been having an issue with burning DVDs on my first generation Mackbook Pro. I get the message that "the laser couldn't be calibrated for this type of media".

    I thought the problem might be in the media so I bought a different brand and still had the issue. Then I got another brand and still had the issue. I went from Imation to Verbatim to Sony.

    Then I realized they were all DVD+R. I tried DVD-R and it worked.

    Weren't Mac's supposed to burn DVD+R since the G4 Powerbooks came out?

    EDIT: I recall being able to burn DVD+R's but it's been hit and miss (10 coasters for each successful burn).

    My early 2007 2.33ghz 17" Macbook Pro can't burn DVD+R either. :mad:

    My SuperDrive was giving me that error (with +R) and wouldn't even recognize blank DVD-r media so I took it in (today actually) and they're sending it out to get replaced.
