Hi, I have been searching all day over forums and google trying to solve this problem but had no luck.
Using the EAC burning guide from the Wiki articles I burnt several audio CDs on my windows vista laptop. Everything seemed to go fine in the burning process. All the CDs work fine with all my cd players as well as my slightly old iMac and other Windows computers. However, when I insert the CDs into my MacBook Pro they are recognised as blank CDs. The strange thing is, is that my MacBook Pro will recognise consumer CDs from the shops without any hassle.
I've tried two different disks (maxwell cd-r and a blank non-branded cd-r) so I think we can eliminate any media problems.
It could be a problem with the burning process but then why would it work on all of those other platforms including another Mac?
I have tried re-installing older versions of iTunes, same result. My MacBook Pro is currently up-to-date too. Also to add that I have made audio CDs on this MacBook Pro using both Toast and WaveBurner that play fine.
Does anyone have any ideas, I think it is likely to be a problem with my MacBook Pro settings but would not know where to start?

The main problem with Matsushita drives (AKA: Panasonic) is that IF the color dye on the CD/DVD is too light it might not read it correctly and it will think that it is empty... You should try other brands... (That happened to me in the past)
