    Hi there,

    I am having some difficulties burning DVD’s and would greatly appreciate any help you can offer. Before I begin explaining the problem, please let me note that the DVD’s that I am trying to burn are backups of DVD’s I have already purchased. They are for my personal use as backups. I am relatively inexperienced, and because I do not know what information you need, I will try to be as specific as possible:

    I have a Macbook Pro 15 inch. Here is my burner information:


    Firmware Revision: ZA0E
    Interconnect: ATAPI
    Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipped/Supported)
    Cache: 2048 KB
    Reads DVD: Yes
    CD-Write: -R, -RW
    DVD-Write: -R, -R DL, -RW, +R, +RW, +R DL
    Burn Underrun Protection CD: Yes
    Burn Underrun Protection DVD: Yes
    Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, DVD-DAO
    Media: No

    I use MacTheRipper and then Popcorn 2 to burn the DVD’s. At first I used DVD+R Media 8.5 2.4x Dual Layers by Matrix, but since these didn’t work, I switched to Memorex DVD+R Dual Layers. The package says 2.4 to 8x, 240 min, 8.5 GB.

    When I try to burn the disc I always get an error on the lead-out. I cannot remember the exact error message, but can remember that it said it was a hardware error.

    Last night, I tried DVD2oneX 2.3, and received error messages both times I tried burning:

    “ERROR: 1:MESSAGE:Burn failed
    MESSAGE:The device failed to respond properly, unable to recover or retry.

    The first time, I tried using DVD2oneX I had it on regular speed, and the second time, I first restarted the computer and tried the Command key, Option, R, and L trick and it worked as stated, but did not fix my problem. I also attempted to switch the write speed from Max to 6X.

    If anyone has any ideas and can help, I would greatly appreciate it. I have tried doing research, but have come up empty handed with an actual solution. Also, if you think I need an external hard drive and you have one to recommend, please let me know. I don’t know if this is a defect with my burner, but I would really like to get it straightened out.

    Thanks again,

    I do not know what your problem may be, but one thing I do know.
    If you want to buy Dl media get Verbatim 2.4x or 4x.
    Any thing else and you should just toss your cash out.
