    I have a 12" powerbook 1.33 Ghz and when I bought it was able to burn dvd-r. (if I'm wrong on the original spec I apologize and this is a moot point). But today I was looking at the system profiler and the disk burning section showed I can burn dvd +r and dvd +rw. I read somewhere the drive was capable of such a feet but was disabled for some reason. Is this a feature of Tiger enabling dvd +r? If you know anything I love to know! I've added a screen shot from my system profiler. Thanks!

    I have noticed the same thing. Yet to actually try it out. I think it was frankly a poor decision of apple to cripple these drives in the first place, but who knows what they were thinking.

    Anyone test this out yet?

    Yes with a but also, if you have Toast 6 Ti. you could burn dvd+r as far as I have been told. I happen to use an external dvd drive and could do both and I'm using 10.3.9. :rolleyes:

    Apple never really "crippled" the drives, they just didnt support them in their iApp programs or the Finder. But with Toast you could burn them fine (from what I was told), I never did but my System Profiler always said I had the ability to burn +R ever since 10.3 (10.2 didnt support +R discs at all, it couldnt even read them), I remember how 10.3 opened up read support for +R discs for my friends PMG4...

    I would try it but at this time I don't have any +r dvds (I like -r) also my dvd player will only play -r format.
