    i have a simple question will the 4x superdrive that will be included in the new G5's be able to write to DVD RWs?

    Yes.

    They have to be dvd-rw's though. Not dvd+rw's. Unless apple allows the dvd+r/-r capability of the dvdr-106 (which is the drive that is presumably in the G5). I'll think they'll stick with -r though.

    so are you saying the drive is capable of the + writing.. just apple only lets it write to - disks?

    The dvdr-106 is capable of dvd-r/rw and dvd+r/rw . It's looking like the panther divers only allow -r/rw to be burned though.

    It is still as yet unconfirmed because Panther isn't done yet and the G5's aren't shipping...
