    Have you tried restarting the computer, reset PRAM, etc?

    FYI: Try not to use short hand.

    It sounds like a dead drive; you may have to take it to the store to get it fixed.

    What kind of disc did you put in the drive? I've seen dead drives get detected in Windows, but not work.

    i have a similar problem. i have been trying to burn DVD's in both data disk and movie form, and they cannot be read on macs! i put it in on the PC and they are working fine. i am using an external LaCie burner, my internal burner refuses to work at all when burning.

    the thing i dont get is that i am burning it with toast and disk utility, tried it a number of times all with the mac compatible disks (UDF is compatible isnt it???)
