Why does the new pb have an 8x superdrive but the g5 iMac does not?
2 reasons... both extremely obvious.
1.) The Power line... something to differentiate.
2.) Updates are on there way.
Ive already reported you and im going to again. You have an extremely bad attitude in all my threads.
Umm... I see nothing wrong in his post. You should be the one getting reported if your other thread is of any indication...
Now I'll pretend I didn't feed the troll, and add in...
But the eMacs have 8x Superdrives, don't they? It's really strange that the iMac G5's don't... Wonder if it's because 8x wasn't available in slot-loading drives (at the time of the iMac G5's launch)?
I am sorry if i came off bad. I didn't mean anything bad to you at all.
Edit- i couldn't even find another time i posted in one of your threads, except one. That one was nice.
From a MacWorld from Steve Jobs himself when he introduced the Flat Panel G4 iMac is that when you place a CD drive on it side (built-in into the monitor) that you have to slow it down for it to work. The design was to keep the screen as flat as possible. You can use a 16x third party Superdrive that is external but I believe iDVD won't work with third party drives. You would have to use DVD Pro. You can still make a data DVD and Toast has a DVD crude video app for real DVDs.
OR you can use iDvd '05 - and export it as a Dvd disc image, and burn it under either Toast, or Disk Utility.
Ah, I didn't consider the horizonal vs. vertical thing. Answers my eMac question if this is right.
May I ask what was wrong with his attitude
Over to your question: I tought that the iMac had 8X Superdrive just that it was only DVD-R and not a RW with the + and -
It's time for you to leave now.
edit: oh noes! Suppose I'm going to be reported too now for having an "extremely bad attitude in all my threads." Oh well, it's OK, I'll get over it.
2 Replies: (both extremely obvious)
1) Perhaps it was the "both extremely obvious" quote. It didn't bother me.
2) I thought that was a software / firmware issue with the DVD-[-+R,-+RW]
Maby it is just Firmware
Will apple send out updates for it for free or ?
I have received Firmware updates from Apple thru Update / CD for free in the past. I am wondering if they will call it a feature in Tiger and only include it with that release. Or it could already be that way, just put one of those other DVDs in the drive and use iLife '05 to burn a DVD to see if it works.
