    I borrowed my freinds powerbook to burn some DVD's because I cheaped out and didn't go for the Superdrive option on mine. :rolleyes:

    Anyway, I bought DVD+R media. When I read the system specs of his 1.0GHZ 15" aluminum PB it says it only writes to DVD-R

    ...Just double checking that the +R media won't work in this book. Yes? Thanks!

    Yeah. The + and the - seem insignificant, but it's acutally a big deal. Go and get some minuses.

    The super drive on my iMac can read and write both + and - R's..

    It depends which superdrive you've got. Previous versions did not support double-layer discs. New ones do. I learned this when I bought a ten pack of DVD+Rs and my Powerbook (1.25) said :confused:

    New superdrives support (according to Apple.com:

    DVD-Video
    DVD-ROM
    DVD-R
    DVD+R
    DVD+R DL
    DVD-RW
    DVD+RW
    CD-ROM
    CD-Audio
    CD-R
    CD-RW
    CD Bridge
    CD Extended
    CD Mixed Mode
    Photo CD
