Can iMac G4 800 read dl-discs?

Hi,
does a doublelayer disc work in an iMac G4/800 17" with the original built in superdrive? I want to burn a dl-disc with 7GB on my macbook and give it to a friend who owns that machine.

Thx from germany,
Frank

I don't think so -- but for a reliable answer, check the link below for Apple's specification sheet for your machine:

No, not with the orignal superdrive. You can upgrade the optical drive to a dl drive in a G4 iMac without any problem.
