    I am trying to make a DVD with iDVD on my White MacBook 2.1 GHz, basic model. I opened up iDVD and the first thing it tells me is that I don't have a supported superdrive so I cannot burn movies. How stupid is that? They bundle software that won't even work with my mac? Sorry, I am really frustrated because I was watching a bunch of videos on how to use iDVD and read up on it, and now if I create a DVD I cannot burn it??

    2.1 GHz Core 2 Duo
    120 GB HDD
    1 GB RAM
    8x Superdrive

    Here is what it says in the overview


    Firmware Revision: GA0K
    Interconnect: ATAPI
    Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipping Drive)
    Cache: 2048 KB
    Reads DVD: Yes
    CD-Write: -R, -RW
    Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw
    Media: Insert media and refresh to show available burn speeds

    But I was told it had a superdrive from futureshop... I guess not... seeing as it was only 899.99

    Your drive does NOT burn DVD's, just CD's

    Aww, is there a way to put a superdrive in or would it make more sense just to buy a USB burner?
