Super Drive in dual 2.5 G5 no longer sees blank media

I'm not sure why, but the super drive in my G5 will no longer recognize blank media. I've tried CDs and DVDs...no luck.



When I looked at the disk in Disk Utility, it shows up as locked. The media are definitely blank. I was able to try them on another Mac and they behaved as blank media should.



Any ideas?

    Do you have 10.3.7 installed? Seems like a known issue. Did you try Toast, by the way?

    I don't have toast, but I've never heard of this issue. Hmm.



    I ended up toggling the blank disc behavior in the Sys Prefs a few times and restarting. After two or three attempts, it worked.
