The error message says: "The attempt to burn a disc failed. The burn failed because of a medium write error."


I updated iTunes, ran Disc Utilities, and even tried lowering the write speed.


Sometimes I don't get the error message above, the disc starts to burn for a minute, burns a song or two, then jumps straight to "finishing" and freezes.


Data discs burn just fine by putting a blank CD in the drive, dragging files to it and then pulling it to the trash to burn. So it's not the media or the drive. It's iTunes.


I'm using Mac OS X

Version 10.5.8

Dual 2 GHz PowerPC G5

iTunes 10.5.3

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
