    Hi, I have a couple songs i'd like to burn and when i burn with toast titanium it says:


    and when i try and burn with iTunes it says:

    Can somebody please help me out. I've restarted my computer and same thing shows, this isnt only for music too. Toast Titanium gives same error when i burn .iso files, videos, and data. Is my SuperDrive Broken? or what?

    It may be the drive, do a hardware test from the OS X Install Disc 1

    my superdrive is getting worse by the day also. Not to mention it takes roughly 30 minutes for it to start up from the OSX dvd.

    It makes all sorts of clicking noises as of late, but still seems to read, and not damage discs. Albeit a bit slow.

    Don't move you computer when you're burning. And use better media.

    Sounds like you need a new drive.

    Mine died in the weirdest way...burning DVDs was the first to go (literally, everything else worked including reading DVDs and burning CDs), and then features dropped off one by one until it wouldn't work anymore.

    Buy a CD cleaning kit, its a CD which has a little brush on it.
    It worked for me, and I had exactly the same errors that you have posted.
    Hope it helps :)

    Engineering has determined this issue behaves as intended based on

    my reply:
    3 seperate brand of media bad, all at the same time?

    Part of reporting these bugs is not getting these types of excuses
    when customers take time to report software issues.

    and theirs:
    I have passed your latest feedback back to engineering for another look.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us with this feedback.

    strangely enough, the final reply from Apple came from someone on the iphone developer team!

    Here we go...... in addition, the drive has no started to click somewhat when loading any dvd in it. CDs are fine?!@?@!#?

    it also takes about 20 minutes to boot from the OSX dvd, something that took <2 before.
