I have never had an apple before. I do now! (yaay!) but that said, I have never burned a DVD either. The DVD has an impressive list of formats it will copy,burn, or record. But I dont understand the different uses at all. or even how to best do the deed. 1. what should I use to make a copy of documents, or programs, or stuff I never want to lose? music cd's for the car? 2. make a copy of my movies? which type dvd, brand is best, etc? Do I want different software to do that? or is mac software on board ok? 3. what else should I know about iMac and DVD's? Thanks!
