first time i've had to post a question, usually i can find everything i need in old posts, so thanks to those who post. problem- i bought an external dvd burner (plextor) and have used patchburn to allow my pb 12'' g4 to recognize it. I created a disk image (a .dmg file) and now i'm trying to use disk utility to create the dvd. After i start the process the blue bar hasn't moved after an hour. Is this normal and i'm just not patient? I have the external burner connected w/ usb, is fast enough or do i need to use a firewire cable? any other ways to burn this movie to a dvd w/o toast or dragon burn? thanks for any help.
