    I created a DVD+R disc on my new Mini that has some Mac apps. Now that my new iMac is here, I am trying to read the disc on my iMac but the iMac just spits it back out. It never shows up on the desktop. Other discs such as the reload discs work. I can put it in the Mini again and it shows up.

    Anyone seen this and know how to share discs between the Mini and the iMac?

    Most basic thing to try is making sure you have closed the disk on the Mini. If a session is not closed other PC's can't necessarily read the disk.

    Thanks for the info and I just double-checked that and it is indeed closed. In fact, I can open the disc on my Windows PC!

    Try some more disks in your iMac. CDs, DVDs etc.

    Well that means the problem is isolated to your iMac and not to the disk. My knowledge of OS X is limited so I can't help further but I'm sure someone else can help from this point.
