So today I tried to burn a CD for a friend, and my drive doesn't seem to see the media. I put in a blank disc, it spins around for about 30 seconds, and then spits it back out. To make sure the drive was still alive, I put a regular CD in there and it saw it just fine. I know this problem has been addressed before, but I had some trouble finding the threads. I also tried resetting my PRAM and it did no good. Here are my drive details: MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-857D: Firmware Revision: KCVB Interconnect: ATAPI Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipping Drive) Cache: 2048 KB Reads DVD: Yes CD-Write: -R, -RW DVD-Write: -R, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, DVD-DAO Media: Insert media and refresh to show available burn speeds Thanks for your help. I have a 1.5 year-old MacBook Pro. Stats are below.
