Thanks for your post. This is the drive that came with my Mac. It's an internal burner. Yes, iTunes can burn disks just fine. And the last question is yes as well, it's the same name that Toast is giving the recorder as Disk Utility recognizes and the same name as found in the System Profiler which is MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-868.
I hope you can shed some light into this matter as I've been desperately trying to get files burned for my customer for over 2 weeks now.
Oh, and I forgot to mention that I'm using Mac OS 10.5.6 (all up to date).
I'm trying my best to describe my problem... I haven't changed any setting in Toast so I guess I'm using the default settings. Yes, I'm trying to burn a simple file using the internal drive that came with my brand new MacBook Pro Unibody. I'm using Mac OS 10.5.6 (fully updated). I've attempted over 15 times to burn, I trashed Toast .plist and launched Toast 10 again, drag my file in the Data window and get a Kernal panic, each and every time I hit the "Record" button. If there is anything I'm missing in describing my problem, please let me know and I'll do my best to describe what is happening. I'm not very technical but I have been using a Mac for 19 years and have been using toast since version 5 without any problems... I lost as to what the issue is as I can burn with no problem using iTune burn or a Burn Folder. My internal drive as specified in the System Profiler is MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-868. This is the same drive Toast is recognizing. I'm lost. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
