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!
