Won't Recognize Disc


I am sure this has been dealt with before but this has been an ongoing problem for me, I have lost many discs which amounts to lost $, anyway I have tried and tried again and again putting discs in, the message I get is:

The Drive Reported an error:


Sense Code: 0 x 30

I have no experience with the Memorex Lightscribe CD-Rs but Memorex is known for making bad quality DVD media so maybe the CDs are very good either. It also could be that the drive's firmware is not designed to work with those Memorex discs. You can check the drive manufacturer or Apple (if it is a Superdrive) to see if firmware updates are available.


I am confused when you mention flipping the discs over. There is only one side that can be burned using Toast. The other (label) side is for use with a Lightscribe application that burns text and graphics if you have a Lightscribe-capable drive. None of the Superdrives support Lightscribe burning.
