See in disk utility if there is any unmounted volume. If so, mount it.

This is a video that I made and want to copy. Toast will make a disc image, it puts the picture of the 2 clips, and then says "could not record the disc because a file could not be found" Result code

Your burner program wants to make an image so the video can be played in a DVD player. If the format is not correct it don't want to burn the disk. Please read the manual from the burner program, or press the F1 key before you start. I hope they inserted some help in the program.

Dvdcd player is not reading some cds and reads others

This has to do with the type of CD you are trying. Is it a VCD, SVCD, etc.? Also, some CD players will only play certain formats of CDs. For instance, it will play regular store-bought CDs, and will play CD-R discs that you have made in the computer, but won't play any RW discs like CD-RW or CD+RW discs. ALSO, some players will play CD-R and CD-RW but any + discs, like CD+RW are not compatible.
Basically all players will work with a CD-R, and usually CD-RW but the + ones are less compatible. If I knew your model CD player I could check for you, but that is probably the case. Stick with CD-R and you should be good to go.
Lastly, rarely, but sometimes, the drive may not like the disc brand you are using due to the composition used (like if the bottom is blue or greenish). Tends to be that blue or what they say is cyan discs work best. I use TDK and Verbatim branded CD-R and CD-RW, and they seem to work best.
Good luck!!

Drive won,t play discs and sometime won,t reconize that a disc is

If the "bad" disks work fine in some other DVD-player, then it's time to spend $40 and buy a new DVD-writer.

Or, if your current DVD-player is under the manufacturer's warranty, exercise the warranty, to get it repaired/replaced.

MacBook Pro doesn't recognize certain discs? :/

Please excuse me for my bad english.

I spent several hours scratching my head trying stupid and complex solutions like reseting p-ram, re-flashing the unit, etc.

The final solution...
  1. Buy a compressed air can (for electronics cleanning).
  2. Please turn off your MacBook pro
  3. Purge the humidity by pushing a little the trigger. Wait some seconds until it just blows dry and cold air.
  4. Blow air from the tray entering and towards the back of the unit.
  5. Enjoy your movies!

Reads all but DVD-Help PLEASE

When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks? If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD. Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
