-DVD burn does not work in the DVD player sometimes

I have a Mac Pro from the beginning of 2008, and it came with a DVD drive (OPTIARC DVD RW AD - 7170A).  I was able to burn DVDs with using toast in the past.

But lately, the half of the DVD burn won't play in my DVD consumer player.  I get a "Disk error" message when I try to play them, and they do not load.  It's a strange problem, because some of them work and some do not.  I can't tell where the problem is.

Is there a way to test the DVD player?  Should I just replace it?

Many brands of blank DVDs gives very inconsistent results when burning. If you use a brand store or generic blanks, that may be the problem.

  • My apple pencil does not work after the 9.3.4 update.

    My apple pencil does not work after the 9.3.4 update. I tried to restart but still does not work. Tried to forget the device and whenever I connect the pencil to the ipad pro, it is said that it does not recognize the cable / device. Help please.

    < re-titled by host >

    Greetings RechargeableJam,

    Welcome to the communities of Apple Support!

    I see that your Apple pencil does not work after update to iOS 9.3.4. I guess it's about to have a problem with something that worked with the previous version of the iOS software. I'm happy to help you to help you find the best resolution.

    First of all, let's close open applications on your iPad Pro. This can ensure that there is nothing running in the background that is causing a conflict. The following article will help you:

    Force a nearby application on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

    Then connect the pencil of Apple and see if it is recognized for the time being. If you don't see the Pair button, wait a minute while your Apple pencil costs. Then disconnect your Apple pencil, Plug and back on hold until you see the button in hand.

    Best regards.

  • AutoComplete does not work on the address field.

    AutoComplete does not work on the address field. This means that the completed form is missing from the address. What is special about the address field and why doesn't autocomplete work? I have NOT opted for "don't follow it.

    http://www.thepetitionsite.com/TakeAction/918/708/047/

    Hi robmm76. I looked at the link you provided. It seems that the reason why AutoFill does not work for the address field is because of the way this field has been programmed on the site. It has been programmed to make type you part of your address and click on the right pair and it would then fill in city, State and zip code. If this field is just a special case.

    I hope this information answers your question. If you need more information or help please do not hesitate to reply to this reply.

  • Acorn TV does not work on the new Apple TV

    So disappointed that the Acorn TV app does not work with the new Apple TV we just bought. We have subscribed on iTunes and nothing happens when you try to activate the software. We can look good on the MacBook, iPad and iPhone. Verified the purchase on iTunes account and that's fine. Contact Acorn and say it is a matter of Apple.

    Strange that I have to use Chrome to even write this question. Safari and hers do not work with the Support pages. I'll send in the comments.

    I'm resetting Apple TV now. We have been with the Apple TV since version 1. I hope that we can make this work!

  • Shortcut Ctrl C does not work in the main window of Firefox

    I use Firefox version 38.0.5, Windows 7
    Since the update Ctrl + C shortcut does not work in the main window of Firefox. (I can't copy text from any website using Ctrl + C).

    Click right and using the copy in the menu works perfectly. CTRL V and Ctrl X work fine without problem.

    Ctrl C works fine when copying text from the address bar and search bar, I just can't copy anything from anything in the main window of firefox.
    

    I tried to run Firefox in safe mode, I have also reset firefox and a virus scanner, but nothing has solved the problem.

    If anyone has any suggestions, that would be great. Thank you

  • The new tab (+) does not work, or the file/new tab feature

    The new tab (+) does not work. The function of the file/new tab does no more work. Both had worked correctly until noon today. I haven't added any software, plug-ins or extensions today, I do not have the Ask toolbar. I tried several of the suggestions made on this site, nothing helps.

    This problem may be caused by an extension that does not work in the current version of Firefox.

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

    • Do not click on the reset button on the start safe mode window or make changes.

    Hi ESNE,.

    Have you checked to see if your PDF is updated? You should take a look at the Base files display PDF in Firefox article. There are lots of good information in there. You should try both of the suggested PDF Add-ons to see if this solves the problem.

    Hope this helps!
