    I read leopard supports about 300 new features.
    Does leopard support multisession dvd writing?

    Windows has it about a decade.

    It would be a shame leopard not to do it.

    No idea. The underlying disc burning framework supports it, but Apple doesn't expose the functionality in their apps. Been like that since 10.3.

    Am I the only one that wants this feature?
    Is it so difficult to be included?

    If there are many people who want it then apple would include it.

    It is one of the things I ve missed since I switched.
    I made extensive use of sessions.
    Now in mac os x, I have to write the whole dvd from the start.

    Is everything perfect in disk writing in mac os x?
    Nobody else needs sessions?

    There are apps available with session support that use Apple's disc burning framework, the 'feature' is there, there is just no checkbox to turn it on yet. The good news is that your wait won't be too much longer. *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*

    I think the thing is that people who want sessions also tend to want advanced disc burning features Apple doesn't support/provide, so they go to other tools like Toast, DragonBurn, etc. (Not everyone of course)

    I guess I will spell it out for you instead of trying to be sneaky about it like my last post: Y-E-S.

    Recording may be OK, but reading ???

    I have a multitude of Windows and Linux-burnt DVD-R that have iso9660 file system. Although one person told it was non-standard to use multisession on this filesystem, and, in fact, to use iso9660 on a DVD, Ubuntu (did Linux done the same?) has recently implemented the ability to read such multisession DVD-R in iso9660.

    As far as Linux programmers are concerned, I can't believe they've allowed a non-standard solution to be in their products, so why do the "Most advanced OS in the world" still lacks this essential feature?
