    I have a few data discs that i burned on my pc. My mac will not read them. I heard somewhere that the powerbook (it's a combo drive) will only read dvd-r's and not +r's. is this correct? I have some files that i would like to put onto my mac, and would like to know if i can just burn them on my pc and still be able to use them with my mac. I was also looking into the external lacie dual dvd+-rw drive for my mac that runs about $250. any input? thanks!

    use the network

    Have you ever though of hooking both up to the same network, and transfering the files that way. No need for 250 drive. But if you just want to use the disks, then go get one, don't really know what else to say. I don't think to many people here buy +R drives or use those dvds because Macs are -R, so maybe that is why you didn't get any feed back.
