    I'm not sure if this is a hardware or a software problem....but whenever I try to burn to DVD in iphoto - it fails.

    system log gives me this:

    Jul 14 17:34:41 Hanas-Computer kernel[0]: disk1s2: I/O error.
    Jul 14 17:34:43 Hanas-Computer kernel[0]: SAM Multimedia: READ or WRITE failed, ASC = 0x09, ASCQ = 0x00
    Jul 14 17:34:43 Hanas-Computer kernel[0]: disk1s2: I/O error.
    Jul 14 17:34:45 Hanas-Computer kernel[0]: SAM Multimedia: READ or WRITE failed, ASC = 0x11, ASCQ = 0x00
    Jul 14 17:34:45 Hanas-Computer kernel[0]: disk1s2: I/O error.

    on and on and on

    I can burn DVDs fine via Finder....

    So...what's going on? What can I do to fix it?

    By the way, I am doing this on a Macbook, just updated it in software update.

    Thanks,

    to hana-iphoto burn to dvd problem

    I have had just had the same problem on a G4-Tiger 10.4. You are two steps ahead of me--I have not been able to access the system log and, more importantly, have not been able to burn from an iPhoto slideshow via Finder.
    Am urgently trying to do for a birthday present...any help would be gratefull appreciated.

    Export your photos to a folder on your desktop via the iPhoto app. Insert a CD/DVD, and drag the folder to to the icon. Should work fine. Or use a third party app like Toast. I find Toast invaluable, and well worth the money spent. Makes it SO easy!

    Well, it's SUPPOSE to work to burn a disk that way in iPhoto.
    And it's NOT working.
    Or verifying the burn.

    Meanwhile in other news
    1. The Macbook battery has decreased its power (it now does 1:45 vs. 3:00)
    2. The fan goes on about five minutes in to using it wiht either the power adapter or on battery.

    Here's the power specs

    AC Power:
    System Sleep Timer (Minutes): 11
    Disk Sleep Timer (Minutes): 10
    Display Sleep Timer (Minutes): 5
    Automatic Restart On Power Loss: No
    Wake On AC Change: No
    Wake On Clamshell Open: Yes
    Wake On LAN: Yes
    Display Sleep Uses Dim: Yes
    Battery Power:
    System Sleep Timer (Minutes): 10
    Disk Sleep Timer (Minutes): 10
    Display Sleep Timer (Minutes): 2
    Wake On AC Change: No
    Wake On Clamshell Open: Yes
    Display Sleep Uses Dim: Yes
    Reduce Brightness: Yes

    Battery Information:

    Battery Installed: Yes
    First low level warning: No
    Full Charge Capacity (mAh): 4388
    Remaining Capacity (mAh): 2531
    Amperage (mA): -2932
    Voltage (mV): 11219
    Cycle Count: 170

    By the way, I did totally drain the battery and recharge it.

    Looks like I'll be putting the Macbook to sleep after I use it every time.

    Or....I could just shut it down for the day. Maybe that will work...give it some rest? It's been a year....

    Oh...by the way, Macbook rev A. All software updates have been run.

    Thanks,

    Okay...I solved my low battery life and fan going on after 5 minutes on the Macbook.

    I doodled around and found "Activity Monitor" in my Utilities folder of the Application folder.

    I found that there was a print utility (to an old printer I had that I had mistakenly started a few days ago and thought it had quit) taking about 30% of my CPU! Since the print utility had a familiar name, I had it QUIT THE PROCESS. About a minute later, the fan stopped and the battery life went back to normal!

    I'm so jazzed about solving my own problem! :D

    I'll try to burn a DVD this weekend and see if that solves that other problem of mine.

    Thanks for listening!
