Your machine has a DVD-rom drive, but not a DVD-burner. There is a difference.

Basically, you can read and play the DVD's, but the drive is not capable of burning them.

If you read the system requirements of Sims 3, it says that you need at least an Intel Core Duo processor, which the iMac G4 does not have. The iMac G4 has a PowerPC processor.

Can no longer burn cds on MacBook Pro (Model A1226)


Get a cheapy drive cleaner/laser cleaner. Looks like a normal CD/DVD, but has a brush on one side. Should be able to pick it up from an electronics store/supermarket. Pop it in, watch it go, then try again afterwards. I've detailed this further in a blog posting at <a href="http://www.garysmith.org.uk/blog/index.php/blog/show/Matshita-DVD-R-UJ-857E-problems---dirty-laser.html">http://www.garysmith.org.uk/blog/index.php/blog/show/Matshita-DVD-R-UJ-857E-problems---dirty-laser.html</a> - there's a few comments on there about it, pretty much all of them saying that it's worked for them. I guess with it being a slot loader it's perhaps a little more open to getting dust inside. Hope that helps.

Thanks,
