I have A Apple laptop G3 Lombard
Classic (22095) (22095) DVD±RW Burner.
I use Toast 6 Titaninum
Until now burning worked fine.
Suddenly when I wanted to burn a CD I got the following error message:
The drive reported an error;
Sence Key = ILLEGAL REQUEST
Sence Code = 0x20
INVALID OPERATION CODE.
Do you know what this means and what can I do about it ?
Thank you in advance

Hi , Make sure you still have the software stored on your machine or on cd . Please delete software and go to this site : http://kb.roxio.com/search.aspx?URL=/content/kb/Toast/ET6000082&PARAMS=set-locale=en Follow instructions to reinstall software . If same issue remains , try to remember what changes you eventually made to your machine just before problem happened and delete the changes to see what happens . You can also try to restore your system to an earlier date , provided this is possible with Apple . Hope this helps . Thank you for visiting FixYa .

If nothing really succeeds , the last but drastic solution is to open the box and connect the drive right inside your pc ( provided it's a desktop ) to the motherboard via ide or sata connection . Windows should then recognize the drive .
Probable reason for failure of a disk is power, if the power is adequate may be some of its components like inductor, diodes in series with the power line are opened, check for any burn marks on the pcb
I know exactly how you feel, since the lightscribe feature is great, but the lightscribe software is pc and not mac compatible, though the burner will work up til that point in the process on a mac.
I solved the problem by using an external dvd burner on a spare pc which will accommodate the installation software for lightscribe and burn and create and decorate the dvd.
I have yet to try a possible solution involving a Core Duo and combo Mac/PC Operating system since I still use an old iBook G4 to create videos but if your Macbook will accommodate both types of OS then you might try using the lightscribe software installation disk on your macbook in pc mode as a windows application.
Have you tried moving the files onto your laptop and uncompressing them there?
Did you have Winrar (or any other copressing software) installed on the laptop before you went back to factory settings? Are the compressed files on the external drive in the .zip or .rar (or another) file format?
I had a similar problem with a Sony External DVD Writer. I updated the firmware and all was right again. If you can identify the model of your drive here ----> http://www.freecom.com/firmware.asp?form1=true&form2=true&serie=12600&Manufactures=12600 ----- Then you can download the firmware, update and you should be set. Hope that helps!
