    Hi,

    I've just bought a LaCie slim porche design lightscribe USB DVD+- RW drive
    so I can burn DVDs using my ibook G4.

    I installed the driver software from the LaCie web site
    (the supplied software that came with the unit was just for windows).

    It all seems to work fine - and I have even succeeded in burning a
    CD on the external drive.

    But if I create a disc burn folder and fill it with a few Gbytes of files and then
    insert a DVD -R, it tells me there isn't enough space. It seems that the finder
    thinks that I have put in a CD - despite the fact that I have installed the
    driver software from LaCie that says it is compatible with finder, itunes... etc.

    Can someone give me step by step instructions what to do ?

    Thanks very much
    Nick

    DVD Burning may not be support from the Finder with that burner. You may have to go through something like Toast.
