    So every time I try and burn a DVD this message appears. Today is the first time I try burn a DVD under Leopard. In Tiger I was able to burn several DVDs.

    I have a CD MacBook.

    Many people at Apple.com discussions have this problem, but I haven't head about it here in MacRumors. Anyone found a fix?

    And you do have a Superdirve, not a combo drive, right? Is the media Apple Brand? I have ONLY used Apple DVDs since I found some others did not work.

    Maybe try this: http://www.patchburn.de/

    This app worked when I put a DVD burner into my Pismo.

    Yep, I have Superdrive. And the DVDs are not from Apple but I haven't found with this DVDs in the past. I'll try and see if another brand works.

    Yes, please try another brand. Hate to have you "waste" DVDs.

    A while back all I ever used was Maxell CDs. Bought a new batch, they looked the same. Not a one would work. Tried 5 of them from random pulls out of the pile of 100. They worked fine in my roomates PC.
