    When I purchased my Powermac G5 I downgraded to the combo drive to save money. Now I'm looking to upgrade to an internal Dual Layer DVD burner. My question is are there only certain models that are compatible and will fit the Powermacs Eject Door system? I'm looking for a reliable model between $50 and $100, does anyone have any recommendations? thanks for any help

    Go to your local reseller and ask them for a Superdrive DVD+-RW 16x DL burner. I believe the Pioneer A109 goes for around $70-$80.

    I agree the DVR-109 is your best bet, dont forget "patchburn" though,

    Hi Nick, have you looked into the LaCie web site under the recons? I ask since you can get an external burner for $99 and get the software with it that will allow you to burn to (more like from) iDVD, iMovie and iTunes without using Patchburn. Also then you wouldn't need to take apart anything, just plug it in and your set. Just a thought for ya ;)

    What is Patchburn? It seems like most DVD burners only say they are compatible for Windows.
