- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
Is this a Mac running OSX? Or is it a Linux box? This is a Linux forum, so Mac support is pretty spotty. In any case, when burning a CD, the system needs to adjust the laser output for the media. There may be a fault in the drive that is causing this problem to occur. I have dual burners on my system's IDE-ATA controller, one the master, the other the slave. I can burn DVD's on either drive, but only the master seems to deal with the laser calibration needed for CD burning, so I use one for CD's and the other for DVD's. Go figure.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
