Question about Computers & Internet
I can't say for certain with a MAC but when I have come across this problem on a Windows machine a firmware update will often solve the problem.
I doubt very much if there is a different firmware for MAC or Windows as all the firmware does is report what device and what characteristics the device has that it is installed on.
You don't seem to see it when buying CD's but I know that when you buy DVD/R's these days they include information about checking the firmware and the site where you can find information about your optical drive in order to make sure it is upto date.
One of the advantages of a firmware update is the fact that it allows your optical device to recognize more brands of media disks.
The reason I use Liteon optical drives in my own machines and all the builds I do is reliability and the fact I have yet to find a media disk they don't recognize.

Does it play other discs ok? What is the exact model of the computer? and what program are you burning with?
