    Hi I just bought a new macbook 2.0 Ghz black 120 GB HD with the super drive and I was wondering if anyone might know if to burn DVDs it requires DVD+R or DVD-R discs??

    According to the Apple website's MacBook Tech Specs page, it writes both DVD-R and DVD+R discs at up to 6x speed.

    From Apple.com about the Macbook:

    "6x double-layer SuperDrive (DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)"

    It can take either +/- DVD-R

    I've used both in my SuperDrive MacBook--+R and -R, and had no problems. Couldn't tell any difference actually...?

    Keep in mind that you can't write dual layer disks, but you can read them in a MacBook.
