    I just got a mac mini with a superdrive, and i successfully ripped and burned 3 movies in a row...using the same media, (which were admittedly crappy), ive produced 4 coasters trying 3 different movies. Why would the first few work and then the last few wouldnt...im using mac the ripper, then toast titanium, burning them as dvd-rom data cd's..
    last nite, i ripped a movie, it burned and verified successfully but then it wouldnt play

    i dont get it...any ideas?

    The fact you stated you used CRAPPY media may be the problem. With cheap/poor quality media you may get some that work and some that don't out of the same package. The failure rate out of a batch may be as high as 50%. Another problem with the junk media is that the ones that work now may not work again in six months. Try some well known good media and see if the problem goes away. There is a forum just for MAC at this link.

    Good luck.

    No problem. The fact you got some to work at least seems to say you have the process right and your programs are working. Later.
