The DVD Burner on the MAC will no longer burn DVD's. I can play or read the disc but no burning. 

I have tried cleaning the lense, different DVD brands and still get the following error;

"The disc can’t be burned because an unexpected error occurred (error code 0x8002006E)."

 

Is there a way to re-install the DVD drive?

iMac 27, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 2.8Ghz Intel Quad Core i7 / 8GB / 1TB

    Try different software. However, I suspect it won't work. If it doesn't, the drive has to be replaced.

    Your thinking hardware failure then?

    Yes. I know it's bad news, but—them's the breaks.

    I tried the SMC reset after many long & drawn out attepts to work out what was wrong, and it worked perfectly! Literally clapped with joy when that lovely "writing track 1" message came up.
