    Ok I am using my G5 dual 2 with the 4x dvd burner to burn a DVD. This is my second time to burn one and everytime on the stage 4 asset encoding burn stage it says insert a blank DVD. I have inserted 3 new ones to no avail. What gives? My DVD has 3 movies on it no longer than 10 minutes each and a photo slideshow that is like 5 minutes. Any ideas, are all of my dvds bad, iDVD bug? Please help and thank you.

    My question would be, which SuperDrive to you have? The newest models come with DVD burners that do both +R and - R disks, but many that were pretty recent (including the 4x, I believe, but I could be wrong) were -R only.

    If your disks are "DVD-R" (which will work in any SuperDrive), then it's something different that I'm unaware of.

    Does it burn them, then ask for more? If so, you can cancel after burning the first one - it's just making copies. If not, then what does it do when you insert the new DVDs?
