Repair Error Code -36

"…A error has occurred while reading the disc. Possibly the disc is damaged or dirty."

I tried using brand new DVD's, but still no good. Sometimes it happens after about 5 minute, and other times 30 seconds.

On rare occasions the movie will continue playing after the error code appearance.

How can I repair this error?

-36 is an I/O error. Your drive or laser may need to be recalibrated. Possibly replaced. Is this the internal drive or an external. Is this unit under warranty?

I get an error message in Toast. On my MacBook Pro the message reads 'Sense Key = MEDIUM ERROR' and 'Sense code = 0x73, 0x03'. Is this a dirty lens?


It can be dirty lens/ drying laser or glitch in software.. Clean your lens, check for laser adn reinstall drivers for toast. If still does not work then provided me your os version, toaster brand - hardware and software name.

IDVD: Problems with burned DVD.


Try a different brand of blank DVD.
If that doesn't work any better, and your MacBook Pro is in fact "brand new," bring it to the Apple Store, because you have warranty redress.

MacBook Error 36


Error 36 means “I/O error” (input/output error) and does not explain what the cause of the problem is, sorry.

Check your Mac for bad blocks you can use Disk Utility.
