    Does iDVD support multiple dvd burners going at the same time? Like an external and an internal? Do i need to use a different program? Does OS X support it?

    I'm strongly saying no, I don't know the answer, but I'd say no. The reason being is if you are sending large chunks of data to get burned (copied) onto a disc, your resources are skyrocketing. Not even a P4 or AMD could burn 2 DVD's at once. It just requires too much. Not only CPU interation, but RAM, and the N&S bridge controllers. You could try though.

    I can burn a CD and DVD at the same time using iTunes and Popcorn, so I don't see why two DVDs would be any different. Of course you will need to use two applications to accomplish this. Perhaps doing up your movie and exporting to .dmg then using Disk Utility and Toast to burn it at the same time???
