Also when trying to burn a dual layer DVD the other day a message told me the lazer couldnt power up the the required level, even though the drive supports burning of dual layer discs. All of this on a macbook less than a year old.
phindmarsh: sweet thanks guys. I rang magnum mac in wellington this morning and they said to bring it in. i told them it was under warranty and they said no probs. will try that soon.
