Recently I have been getting the following error message when trying to burn or copy CD's:

The drive reported an error:
Sense Key = Medium Error
Sense Code + 0x73, 0x03

I first saw this error when I was trying to burn some CD's with MP3 files on my hard drive (not iTunes). I usually make 2 copies, but the Superdrive only burned the first one. When I inserted the second blank CD, the error message appeared. I have been using TDK disks forever without a problem and went through almost 75% of the current spool before this. I tried it several times and in each instance, only the first copy was burned.

This is using Toast 7 Titanium and I even upgraded to Toast 8 and the same thing happens. I haven't even tried DVD's yet.

I have never experienced these errors before and I'm beginning to wonder if the Superdrive is going out.
