    I'm trying to make back ups of my originally purchased system discs so that I can use those to do any restores of my system any keep the originals in a safe place. I'm not quite sure what i need to do to successfully do this. Can someone please help me out. I Have 2 different macs that I can use to burn dvd's on but not sure if the drive can do this since I think that I might have to burn dbl layer discs. My iMac says it is a MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-85J and specs DVD-Write: -R, -R DL, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW. Any info would be great.

    You'll need a dual-layer disc for each backup you want to make. I'd make an image of the original disc using Disk Utility, then burn it to the DL DVD.

    Toast will do it, as will Disk Utility or Burn.
