Hi , its my first post here so i’ll try and make a good impression.
fisrtly i ll run through the spec of the machine and then i will elaborate on the problem at hand.
Macintosh powerPCG4 Dual 1.25ghz
running OSX 10.3.5 with all recent updates
Pioneer DVD - RW DVR - 107D (Recently bought and installed internally)
HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4480B (Factory installed unit)
I use Toast Titanium 6.07.
Basically I have two problems at the moment one with each drive.
I recently bought the pioneer drive and installed it myself without a hitch. Got my first pack of DVD’s to use Intenso DVD-R which seemed to work fine although some did error which i beleive was down to my inexperience using mactheripper & dvd2onex. Used them up and bought some Bulpaq orange 4xDVD-R as i had alot of data to back up, (not for DVD movies) i read somewhere that these would be fine for my setup, alas all did not go well. When trying to burn using toast, at various speeds, i get the “sense key error” in one form or another and the disc fails to burn, tried using the finder, Burn Disc mode and this is also unsuccessful fails to burn disc. Now just got some Packard Bell DVD-R discs which work fine in toast. so this leads me to beleive that it is the Bulpaq orange discs at fault. What do you guys think? i am no expert. if it is the Discs can anyone reccomend a altenative brand(Cheapish) that will give me no problems or can u help me fix my drive/toast/system or whatever is causing the problem
The factory installed drive (HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4480B) fails to read any DVD’s whatsoever, It has been like this for some time, once upon a time it did read DVD’s although somewhat erratically, and has rapidally degraded. The drive will still read and burn CD’s! I have liited knowledge regarding this area so any advice or help would be appreciated regarding this drive.
