    i am trying to burn a DVD-R using iDVD to make a TV-Viewable Slideshow... i finished everything, but now my iMac isnt even recognizing the DVD-R as "recordable media."

    the discs im using are
    Memorex DVD-R
    8x 4.7GB 120min

    ?????????

    Try a different brand of media...

    When I got my iMac G5, it came with an Apple DVD-R blank DVD...Not sure if the new ones do or not.

    I had a similar experience with Fujifilm DVD+R's. They work fine in my PC, but not the Mac.

    I 'was' going to try some Memorex branded disk next, on suggestions elsewhere - I'm a little confused now. What brand(s) DO work with superdrives.

    The iMac didn't come with any blanks either.

    I'd recommend Memorex DVD+R's. Work great with my new iMac (iSight)
