Does it give you a error? or does it try to burn them and cannot? Could be the software or the actual cdburner is broken.

How download this software i want iomega DVD/CD writer plz help


There really isn't software that you need to burn DVDs or CDs with Windows. Use Windows Media Center to burn your CDs or DVDs.
Here are some burning software links below or you can google search for some.

I can't burn CDs (maybe one out of 10 will write).The computer gives an error code 0x8002006e . Turns out there's a lot of talk on the Apple site about this but nobody has an answer. The drive also isn't...


  • just press the cmd+alt+esc keys
  • in the window that appeare, choose the finder application and press the restart button
  • insert a blank cd-r and try to burn the cd from iTunes or the finder.

It seems like a workaround but because I'll never restart my Mac (I always use the standby) I don't have to restart the finder application everytime I want to burn a cd.

I hope the "snow leopard" will fix the problem!

hope that helps anyone out there ..

Kim,  I'm glad you asked this.  I have had problems with my superdrive as well.  What I found out through persistent research is this:     The new Superdrives can take CD+R and DVD+R.  (I am assuming you are asking about recording?   However, the older models of Superdrives ---usually found in Powerbook G4s, can take CD-R and DVD-R.  These are different from the first ones ini that they are slower to burn, and just a few gb short of space than the +.  this should help solve the problem with taking new cds and dvds for burning.  The superdrive tends to just spit these right back out.  If you are referring to playing them, then have you tried cleaning the dirty ones?  Check the help section at www.apple.com.  they have wonderful solutions.  Try to put in a couple new cds or dvds to play.  Open up itunes or the dvd player before you put the disks in.  If you're still having trouble, make use of that warranty and go to your nearest apple store to fix it right up! Hope this helps!

Cd drive won't read discs..


ok,

1. Have you burned discs often?

2. Have you tested it with different cds or dvds?

3. Do you receive an error message like "-36"?

4. If you go to top left APPLE/ABOUT THIS COMPUTER/ ATA
or
APPLE/ABOUT THIS COMPUTER/ DISC BURNING, what is noted there?

5.If you put your ear next to the drive with a disk in it, does it make a churning sound while the disc is spinning?

6. WHat is your computer's serial number?





Keep me posted.
