Hello y'all
i'm new here.. and have an important question.. probibly like everyone else.. so anywho...
i recently bought an external dvd writer and using a g4 powerbook....oh yes.. and also using Toast 6... the problem i'm haveing is that when i burn a DVD data cd in Toast the writer drive will recognize the dvd when complete it and "mount" it to the desktop... but when i put the dvd data cd in the powerbook dvd/cd drive (which is a dvd reader and cd writer) it doens't read it and gives me an error saying "You have inserted a disk containing no volumes that mac OS x can read. To continue with the disk inserted, click ignore"... and then when i do that nothing happens and no disk comes up..

i don't know if i'ts important info but i am using DVD+R disks and i am using the option of PC&Mac ability in Toast 6..

so i guess the question is how can i make dvd's (data) that will show up as a dvd when i put the disk into my computer and NOT the external writer?

should i try another program to burn?

Thanks for any help you can give me,
Richard

can you read the DVD through the external burner? cause I've read about problem with combo drives and DVD+R media... the software is ok...

yeppers

Yes i can read the DVD+R data cd in the external only.. but it mounts it onto the desktop... which is unusual becuase usually when i put in a cd it shows a little cd icon.. not a mounting icon..

i have yet to try to burn a DVD-R to test. thanks for the help. i'll let you know what happens..

Richard
