    Any old CD-RW drive will do. I suggest using Toast Titanium and iMovie, just have iMovie export to toast Video CD. FCP should be able to save to a format toast can burn as VCD too.

    You need a DVD disc to play movies in non-computers.

    Not true. You can play a VCD in a VCD compatible DVD player (or a VCD player if you can find one outside of Hong Kong).

    MPEG Format...Very Important!

    Make sure you export it in MPEG format...that's the only format that VCDs use...otherwise you have to wait a long time (it's annoying) to convert the files to MPEGs...however, if you do need to do that, I believe that Toast Titanium can convert most files to MPEG format when you drag them in to burn a VCD. Anyway, good luck!

    Also, you shouldn't be having any problems with burning a VCD on your superdrive...I've burned many a VCD on mine...
