    Hey,

    Is it possible to create a virtual disc image of an empty dvd+/-r with Disk Utility, or by other means?? Can it be done without any 3rd party apps?

    Yes. Click on "New Image" in the tool bar (or under the menu File->New->Blank Disk Image. It will let you select the size from a list of presets or custom. Make sure it's set to read/write.

    If you just want a place to put items to burn later, you can create a "Burn Folder" in the Finder. Just drag items you wish to burn into it and when you're ready, you can burn a disk from the Finder.

    edit: whether it's burned as DVD+R or -R is decided by the media later

    Thanks for your answer.

    Maybe I should have specified a bit more. It needs to act as a real inserted blank DVD. It needs to be accepted by applictations, such as Toast. ;)
