    I recorded a dvd-rw on an iMac thinking i could read it with my combo drive ibook. no salt. anyone can confirm this? i no longer have access to the imac and need to read this disc. the dvd-r's i recorded are read fine...

    any light?

    I checked help and it says Superdrive only can read them.

    apple should fix that. a dvd rom should be able to read anything a dvdr or dvdrw writes to a disk. it is the same technology only the combo can't write dvd.
