Can't burn a iDVD movie I created.

Created a movie in iMovie, sent it to iDVD and set up chapters etc. Viewed the whole movie in the iDVD preview and there were no problems, buttons work great everything works fine. Send it to burn the DVD, it goes through setting up the menu, compressing the file, etc. Once it starts to actually burn the DVD, it spits it out and the following message comes up:
The recording device reported the media error: Power calibration area error. (0x73, 0x03.)
So I have iDVD create an image file of the movie. Try burning that in Toast and it spits the DVD out and gives the following message:
The drive reported an error:
Sense Key = Medium Error
Sense Code = 0x73, 0x03
So now I try burning the DVD with Disk Utility. Get the following message:
Unable to burn "disk 2" - The device failed to calibrate the laser power level for this media.
All of these were tried using both TDK and Verbatim media.
Anyone have any ideas? Thanks, john

Yes the blanks blanks are the correct media. The drag is... Apple replaced the SuperDrive in November 2006 and this is the first time I've tried to burn something from iDVD. Because it's no longer on warranty, I'm sure they'll make me buy a new SuperDrive.
