    I was burning a DVD using the same method I've always used and I got these two errors about 15 minutes into burning:

    First Error:
    The drive reported an error:
    Sense Key = HARDWARE ERROR
    Sense Code = 0x03

    Second Error:
    The drive reported an error:
    Sense Key = Illegal Request
    Sense Code = 0x03, 0x05
    Cannot Write Medium - Incompatible Format

    I am using new DVDs probably better quality than the old ones. They are TDK 16x DVD+R they are "print-on" DVDs. This is the very first one I have used.

    I run on a PowerBook 1.67ghz 1 gig ram, 128 vid. I took a DVD that I want to lend a friend (Coach Carter) and ripped it using MacTheRipper, Encoded it with DVD Remaster Gold/Pro whatever, and then burned it using Toast 6 Titanium. This has worked countless times (I only bring back-up copies of DVDs to people's homes or on trips). I'm not sure why this failed, but it gave both a software and hardware failure. Any help is appreciated.

    Both errors are probably related to the media. Even though you think they are better quality... something about them is not liked by your burner, which passes the error along to Toast.

    You can try:
    1) using a different piece
    2) burning at a slower speed - force it to burn at 1x
    3) save as a disc image first, then burn from disc image
    4) use a different brand

    See for reputable brands.
