    Im using a 17" unibody macbookpro 2.66 early 09 to make a copy of my Leopard Disc to put in an offsite storage location.
    Im able to rip movies and burn movies (DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-DL), iMovie videos, iTunes cds, rip audio discs, etc.
    The media is Dual-Layer DVD-R in disk utility
    I burn it at the slowest possible speed (on both systems) at 2.4x

    After it writes the data to the disc and finishes, i get this lovely image:

    I tried doing a test install of it from the burned dvd and it installed fine.... =\ what the huh!?

    its done this twice.
    using the same media on a 15" 2.2ghz uMBP late 2008 gives me a completed successfully notification every-time.
