Mac is more about the looks and there a lot of bugs with it .it could be the os.what you can do is get a vista cd install it on the mac and then later on install the mac os.vista will make your pc run a lot better and not have that many problems with the machine it self.if you don't know how to install the os then you can look online or if you don't have a cd borrow one.(exept for the mac os.because the cd is coded to work with only machine with the same code on it.)if you can't find the cd's then take it to a pro and ask him to install a daul os. if you got any more question feel free to email me at gamecrazy944@yahoo.com

What do i need for a computer to start burning or to creat a cd/mp3/dvd .


First you need music to put on the CD. You can put your own music CD in the drive and run Windows Media Player and rip them to your hard drive (copies them). After you get all the songs you want onto your hard drive, you can make an audio CD if you ripped the songs as WAV files (this CD can be played in most CD players) or you can make an MP3 CD if you ripped the songs as mp3 files (this CD can only be played in CD players that support the MP3 standard). To make the audio CD or MP3 CD, just download the free program called BurnAware from the internet and run it. Insert a blank recordable CD in your computer, choose Audio CD or MP3 CD, then choose the songs you want and burn the CD. That's it.

Aspire, M3410, problem with cd burner


Ive had this same thing happen to me over the years and ruined many CDs. Im not really sure why it does this unfortunately. I too have tried a few diffrent burning programs. Sometimes, however, Ive noticed tht its the same songs that mess up on each burn. Ive tried to reburn using diffrent songs and put the ones tht it skipped or were "blank" on on the new cd N it didnt work then either. The only solution I ever came up with was that it was the song itself wouldnt burn for some reason. Try redownloading the song from a diffrent site and see if the new one burns. I hope this helps some in your problem.

Samsung se-s084c and mac os x 10.5.8


Similar problem except worse. Can't even burn anything. Furthermore, disks inserted in the drive are not appearing on the desktop or anywhere. The drive appears in disk utility. It also seems to cause a host of other problems, various burning applications are CRASHING and not even responding to force quit (haven't tried to kill from terminal yet). We've had to reboot several times.

So far experience is awful. Going to return this if it computer keeps crashing everytime the drive is plugged in.

CD-R can open on my macbook just fine and I can burn files and songs onto them, but anything blank DVD won't be recognize by my computer, it will just spit it out.


Have you tried more than one brand of blank dvd-r?

--You could try using a cd / dvd cleaner disc but if that doesn't work then it's quite possible that the dvd portion of the laser has gone out. It would have to be replaced for full functionality.

One more thing you could try if you're feeling bold would be to find the firmware version of the drive and upgrade the firmware.

Let me know if you need more help or have any other questions, thoughts, etc.

My MacBook spits out my music..


Your MacBook only likes odd numbers.
Could be initial sign of failing optical drive. Try other format discs and see if they are ejected too.

I bought iTunes card, bought the songs i wanted, but it wont work


Your CD Drive may be just a CD/DVD reader Drive may not be able to burn onto CD/DVD,s my dads laptop cant, he gets same error when he trys, so he had to use a different cd/dvd burner on a desktop.

If you have a desktop or laptop and you are 100% sure it can burn to CD/DVD,s then i reccomend you get a program called "ULTRA ISO" it is shareware but allows burning up to 300mb per cd for free before it asks you to pay so as long as you keep cd files below a total of 300mb you,d never have to pay. if its actually ITUNES which is reporting the error then your CD/DVD drive may require its own software before itunes will reconise it as CD/DVD burner drive. windows media player can report this type of error also.
