View Full Version : Mac Mini Superdrive & Media?

Nov 15, 2006, 03:56 PM
I have a 1.66 MacMini (early 2006 model) with Superdrive.

1. Does anyone know the model DVD burner in it? I thought all Mac SD's were Pioneer, but I was reading that Pioneer makes -R DL and Phillips makes +R DL, which is what Apple's limited specs page says the Mini has (+R DL).

2. For best recognition in players, DVD-R or DVD+R?

3. I read in another thread today that Taiyo-Yuden make excellent DVD media. What have you used, recommend. Looking for both 4.7 8x as well as DVD+R DL media. Anyone with a Mini that can comment..

4. Do the Ritek DL discs work with a Mac SD or would you recommend Verbatim?
