I have a memorex mrx550le attached to a USB port on my imac using os x 10.3. It seems to work OK. However if I download data to a DVD-RW disk, the data is copied but the disk is no longer rewrittable. I tried using the BURN program got pretty much the same result. Has anyone out there found a way of backing up data to DVD RW disks with os x 10.3.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)

    I Do not think the Burn app can rewrite to a DVD-RW disc once it is written, but not sure as I don't  regularly use OS X Burn app.

    If you use a burning application like Roxio Toast, I believe it has the ability to rewrite over DVD -RWs with no issues.
