Both my MacBook Pro and my iMac will not burn DVDs.  They will burn CDs but not DVDs.

 

They used to but not anymore.

 

I even tried a Aplle Branded DVD and had no luck.  Also TDK and Fuji Film.  Alll of these disks worked before I have half empty 100 packs to prove it.

 

I believe there is an issue of some sort of software or firmware upgrade that made this happen but I am not interested and reinstalling an old version of OSX to get the optical drives to work properly.

 

Has Apple acknowledged and offered a fix for this yet?

 

If I don'y find a solution here there's going to be some warm fuzzy words exchanged at the "Genius" bar this evening.

 

Yes I blew out both drives with compressed air and quite frankly I don't feel I should have to buy a large sellection of different brands of DVDs to find one that might work.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Eric
