I have a MBP running Lion on it  that has iPhoto 9.3 on it and it has stopped burning the photos to the DVD-RW.  

When I burn images outside of iPhoto it burns fine.  I have repaired permissions but there was no change.

Please help me to be able to burn directly from iPhoto.  This is an important reason I got a Mac.

Thanks,

Randal

Please post any error messages.
Are you doing this for backup purposes ?

Yes, it is to back up the images in the iPhoto library.   The error message says

The burn to the SuperDrive drive failed. The disc drive didn’t respond properly and can’t recover or retry.

I will suggest 3 options.
Personally I hate DVD drives, they are slow but understandably convenient and lower cost.

1. Update iPhoto to 9.4.2 and try burning again.
or
2. Purchase an external hard drive and turn on time machine. This will automatically backup your iphoto library.
or
3. Copy your iPhoto library (located in pictures folder) to an external USB or Hard drive manually.

Hope that helps.

we updated to iPhoto 9.4.2 and nothing changed.

Options 2 and 3 aren't an option.  So we will be off to the Apple store to get it looked at.
