Apple CD-RW drives can't write to high-speed discs
by Brad Gibson,

Apple has confirmed that the CD-RW drive included with some Macintosh computers can read from, but cannot write to, high-speed CD-RW discs.

In a Tech Info Library document updated Monday and first reported by, Apple confirms the problem on Power Mac G4 computers with a CD-RW drive and warns users to "only use CD-RW discs that are rated from 1x to 4x speed. The CD-RW drive in your computer cannot write to high-speed CD-RW discs (4x to 10x speed). Although the drive cannot write to high-speed CD-RW discs, it can read them."

"If you try to write to a high-speed CD-RW disc an alert box with this error message appears: "There was a problem with the target device. Error code -7932," the document states as the way to identify the problem.

Allan - sorry :-(

ok..and where do i find these low speed disks?

If you had one work before maybe some brands work ok with macs and others do not. If you can figure out which kind worked before and use that or see if any list 'mac' compatible. Failing that its trading high speed disks with people who have some older disks lying about. *searches in the pile under the desk* ;)

First and foremost: Imation sucks!!!

And there's no real issue with high speed disks, it just depends on the media.

Finally, WHERE ARE YOU?!?!!?!?! Trying to track you down so I can help.

i got fed up and quit.
james is buying me some disks today that are 1-4
also a new VCR cause i cant seem to get stacys contraption to record from my hi8 to the VHS.

i tried imation, verbatim, and memorex. the kind i used before was the exact same memorex as i tried last night, but i still got the error.

i get my CDR from 'office depot'(521 5th Ave-43rd or 44th St-). i paid $8.99 for a 12-pack-slim CDR. i saw they have CDRW but i'm not sure about the speed.

You might be able to find one on Ebay. You can find just about anything on Ebay. ;-)

it doesn`t really matter what kind of brand you take ! the only difference in cd-rs are the colours ... some colours are better because they reflect better so they make the cdr better. If you buy a sony cdr or a very cheap one it doesn`t really matter because it could be that the cheap one comes from the same factory in china ! just a different name !
i would advice you to use toast !
i can`t even burn cdrs with the macburn software on my iomega zip cd writer thru USB ! with toast everything works , or it should work !

have fun.
