    I've been trying to burn this disk image (its a .dmg file). I have to use disk utility to burn the disk.

    Running the newest version of Panther (10.3.9) and all my other software is completly updated.

    I tried burning onto Memorex CD-Rs. I have a combo drive.

    Have tried with two differnt disks, both are clean and good.

    damnit, I knew i forgot something...
    there is a stop sign, then...
    "The device drained its buffer without burn underrun protection."

    then with an OK button.

    Your using up all the memory set aside to burn the disc. Kinda like how a printer will spool a big job.

    Do you have a lot of programs running?

    i dont think I did...

    I've got 384MB of ram, i'm assuming your talking about that kinda memory. I'll try it again with nothing else running.

    Is there any way to change how much memory is aloted to run it?

    You know how it gives you the progress? It goes to about 1/10th of the bar then I get the message, its not right away.

    Try burning at a slower speed too. That way it doesn't have to keep up as much.

    cant use toast...

    And skoles, thanks so much man. That worked perfectly, just like a charm.

    Anyone have an answer to my other questions (other thread)...

    How can I back up my whole music folder, the iTunes library. Litterly take it and drag it onto an external HD.

    It won't let me do it on my own, any other options? I've heard of something called carbon copy cloner or something, but that wouldn't even open up.

    I have done what you're talking about.....just about 2 days ago actually. All I did was drag and drop, and about 20 minutes later I've got 25 gb moved....

    You should just be able to do an archive & install. When it's done just copy over the iTunes folder from the archived one & overwrite the new.
