I can’t believe I could speak ill of Apple, but it seems my lovely MacBook, which is, of course 1 year and 1 month old (thus, out of warranty) will no longer burn CDs. (And yes, I bought new CD-Rs, to make sure it wasn’t a bad brand or batch.)

Alas, this is sad news. I have some emusic downloads I can’t put on to CD. I guess I’ll have to buy a new car that has an iPod hookup.

Or something.

(What I did for now was to download the tracks again on a different computer and burn the disk from there, but that’s a bit of a pain.)


  1. Post something in the forums, or search through the forms at apple.com. I did, and got some good advice which solved my problems.

  2. I did look through things. They said don’t use Memorex, so I bought Sony. It still doesn’t work. I’ll probably have to set up an appointment at an Apple store. We’ll see!

  3. I hope you have applecare, because if you don’t, they’re so darn stinky.

  4. Nope, I don’t. I refuse to pay for things like that; if I worked out the cost of that compared to the number of times I would need it (only this once after owning Apple products since the first computer came out) it wouldn’t be financially wise. So I will buck up and deal with this one.

    There are other solutions too, as Dan pointed out. I can always solve this other ways!
