Windows authenticated Mac user - burning failure

Posted on 2011-05-04

Whilst logged onto the iMac as a local user burning discs works fine. Whilst logged on as a windows network user (server 2003) burning fails. I presume this is a permission issue but the windows account is an administrative account for the domain so shouldn't have any restrictions from the windows side. I have, however, found that some software needs installed with the local Mac admin account to succeed and the windows user account shows in the Mac accounts panel as an Admin, Network, Managed account.
Any help appreciated.

    Are you using the built-in Disk Utility to burn or some third-party app?  If you are using Disk Utility there shouldn't be any issue as that app likes in a place that should be accessible to all users, especially if that user is an admin, which it appears he is.

    If you are using a third party app, it still should have been installed in the regular applications folder, but I suppose it's possible that it got installed in an applications folder that is unique to that user. If that's the case, other users would be denied access to it.

    Unlike Windows, OS X really does separate off users from each other, even if they are admins.
