Tiger Tip #2

Penned 16 years ago. It will take about 0:37 to read.
It was 81°F in San Diego, CA and the few clouds. Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes by Paul Simon was playing.

If you are having problems with the finder recognizing blank media, a DVD or CD then this tip is for you.

The Finder has been giving me this error all day:

This disc could not be used because the disc drive is not supported (Error code 0x80020025)

I finally found a solution, albeit a very strange one.  It seems there is a bug in the Finder that is only seen the first time you try to insert blank media, it can be cured by restarting the Finder, either by logging out and back in, or by force restarting the Finder by executing an option-apple-esc and selecting the Finder from the Force Quit Applications window.

The finder will restart and all should be happy once more.
