    Hi Folks,

    I am trying to burn a DVD from the photos that I took on our "Roadtrip 2012" vacation.

    I had uploaded all of the photos to the MBP daily while we were traveling and site seeing.

    I produced a show with iDVD and have been trying to burn it to a DVD-R disk. But every time I insert a disk, it refuses to prepare it and spits it back out.

    I have tried a bunch of different disks from my supply and get the same results.

    I should note that I have inserted the disks into my PC and they show up as they should there.

    I am really at a loss what to do...........HELP :)

    TIA

    Bill

    Superdrives go bad, very expensive to replace. An external USB drive would work.
