Thanks. And yes I can burn them in the Mac Pro, and they read in all Macs I have that have optical drives. (including the ti)

Well, if you can burn to them on the Mac Pro at 4.7 GB
and then read them on the Pro AND the Ti…you won’t
need to use them as mini-Frisbees or drink coasters. ;)

And yes, the Amazon Verbatim DVD-Rs should be fine
for the Matshita (specs below).

FireWire and USB drivers using the drivers from the RossDarker's mini CD. You have to replace the Apple Enet extension too, otherwise you will have a wrong IP address.

that iss releated to the "CPU software" version, right? so a localized latest-CPU-version would do, too?

Don't think it is a DVD+R because a friend gave me one once, and only the Mac Pro could read it, PowerBook would spit it out after inserting and trying to figure out what it was. With this disk on the right, it does show up and Mac OS 9 and X understand it as a blank disc, but always get an error when I burn, in OS 9 or even X.

It's not DL, because if I try burn Leopard DVD to it from the Mac Pro, it says not enough space on the disk.

Hey Ross,

Might be a consequence of standard, single layer DVD (4.7 GB) versus the *dual layer DVD (8.5 GB)?

*“can only be created using DVD+R DL and Super Multi drives”

Specs for the MATSHITA DVD-R note that it can read the dual layer DVDs but no mention of writing to the dual layer DVD discs.

how do you know that it is not eventually an old "+R" ? they were the worst.

but i also have media errors with DVDs sometimes (and i am using proper drives, not 15 years old ones). compared to CDs, which almost always work (1298 of 1300 in my case, one of the faillures was a scratched medium) they seem to be less reliable.

there is another isssue with DVDs and that is that sometimes toast report the validation would have failed. but in most cases it is not true!
so if you get a "validation failed" error, always check the disc again with the "compare" function of toast. when comparing the files gives 0 errors and the disc also mounts properly after re-insertion, it´ll be ok!

p.s.
i just ordered mitsubishi branded bluray disks from japan for around 0.80 USD, and the last CDs i bought were wrong prints for USD 0.30 per piece. with DVDs i am not so brave, i buy certain brands only no matter the price.

Look at the picture of the two DVD's:


I am only able to burn the type of DVD (that I have tried), that is on the left.
The type on the left burns fine in toast with no errors.

Although, the DVD on the right hand side doesn't go well.
This is the error I get in toast when I try to burn to that DVD (the one on the right)

followed by:


And initialising from the Finder freezes the System.

Any way to tell the difference between the two DVD's? The problem is I have no clue where they came from, they were just there in a drawer.

You see I am going to get some DVD-R's soon, as I have run out (of the ones I can burn in the Ti), do you think https://www.amazon.co.uk/Verbatim-43548-4-7GB-DVD-R-Silver/dp/B0009U6V90/
will burn alright?
