Hello,

Has it been copying before now?

Its is possible that the laser of your DVD-RW is weak that's why it won't burn.

Secondly, are you aware that there are various types of empty disc? We have A +, A-, R, RW discs. You will to know the one that is compatible with your writer.

Let me know the out come of this.

Bye for now.

    HI,

    Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done. This is how the drive was made. Maybe you will have to go for another drive that can copy to other formats on our mac.

    Good luck.

Go click on the apple logo at the top left of the screen. Then click on About this mac. Then click on More info. Then click on Disc Burning.

It will tell you what DVDs the optical drive will burn. If no info shows up, then you got a bad connection or need to clean the optical drive laser lens or your optical drive is about dead so you may have to buy a new optical drive.

OK. The movie industry strikes again! Your RENTED DVDs are the key.Hollywood made some adjustments to prevent the copying of the movies. So they put software to detect the kind of drives in which the movies are inserted. DVD/RW are capable of copying a movie, so they are disqualified as playing devices. Have it be a normal DVD player you won't be facing any troubles.
