    None found for the iBook Dual USB. Not surprising since it uses tray loader, unlike TiBooks slot loader.

    I don't quite understand why someone would want a DVD-R/RW for a G3 machine. You won't be able to run iDVD with it and making videos would take forever to encode.

    The only thing it would be good for is burning DVD data disks. But that's it.

    At the price for a TiBook upgrade ($449 US), I don't think I'll bother. I can burn DVDs on my other system.

    And if I need to do a major data backup, I can start the Powerbook in firewire target mode and hook it up to the other system.
