    your powerbook has an older DVD-ROM drive that may be encompassed in the large grouping that is drives that cannot read DVD+R/RW disks. Also, since DVD+R/RW has no pledged support from Apple, it would not suprise me one bit that it does not read in your mac (on top of its age), aside from the fact DVD+R/RW is a PC only format.

    well supposedly it will read them... i just need to figure out how?! my G3 powerbook was the last of the 3 that came out and my dvd-rom/cd-rom is an expansion bay... (i would buy the expansion bay dvd-rw but its 500 bucks!)
