I am trying to burn some sounds and a recording of my voice to a disk using GarageBand. It is set on podcast.

When I click burn to disk, it looks like is working, but then it says it can't burn to SuperDrive.

Any Ideas?

Can you burn a disk in Finder? Can you export your recording as audio files from GarageBand and then use iTunes to create an Audio CD? – patrix Jan 5 '13 at 10:31
It's not clear yet whether the problem only occurs when trying to burn from GarageBand or it affects all CD's you computer tries to burn regardless of the application. – Ben Mordecai Jan 6 '13 at 18:38
after doing some tests, it's just a permissions issue. It doesnt work on my user but it does on another user. – kyle_hamblett Jan 6 '13 at 19:12
