  1. Laura P macrumors newbie

    ive got a powermac g5 at work and ive just noticed my writer isnt working correctly. I burn with toast and it appears to have burnt but when i test it on other computers (mac & pc) the cd shows up as a blank disc. My computer keeps spitting cds out at random too without me pressing anything.

    the blank cds or toast are not the problem as I have been using these with no issues for a while. I have done no software updates or installed anything.

    The mac is about 2 years old, any suggestions?
    Thanks Laura

    You haven't got it set to simulation have you, i did that once, if not insert your apple hardware test CD, that will tell you if anything is wrong, also nurn a cd in disk utility or the finder
