    A friend bought a brand new PB and tried burning a DVD with toast and got the following error when writing the lead-out (at the very end of the burning process). Does this mean his superdrive is malfunctioning and should be replaced?

    Thanks!

    Ask your friend if he can try burning at lower speed. This might help.

    might be the cheap blank dvds, sometimes its the media not the burner

    Just to rule out a hardware error, ask your friend to run the hardware test cd that came with the PB.

    Just got the same error today (on a PB 12") while trying to move some videos to DVD using Toast.

    After a failed burn at best speed, I tried it at 1x and the same error occurred.

    I then just saved the project in disc image (.toast extention) and restarted toast. I then just used the image to burn it to a DVD and it finally worked. Hope this helps.

    upgrading your toast to the latest version should also rectify some incompatibilities with some dvdr media...
