Default DVD Burner

I posted this question about 6 weeks ago and got some good input from the DUC. I figured I'd check with you guys one more time before I made any purchases. What's a recommended DVD burner, probably going to be used with iDVD, for my setup? Preferably an internal burner

Mac G4 100MHz bus
1.2 GHz Sonnet Processor
1.25 Gb RAM
OS 10.2.8

Pioneer A06 is reliable. I installed in a firewire enclosure so I could use it for more than one computer. Also it accepts + and - DVD types.

I believe that iDVD requires that the Superdrive be internal, otherwise I'd have used an external also. If you're still looking for a drive, I have a new, unused Black Pioneer DVR-105. I accidentally ordered 2 of them about a month ago and never got around to sending the second one back. Shoot me an email if you're interested. band (at) mamacita.net

I definitely intend on getting an internal, but I need to know if the A05 and A06 are both acceptable for iDVD

The A05 is the retail name for the DVR-105, A06 is the same as the DVR-106. My 105 works fine with iDVD, and I'm assuming the 106 will also, but I've seen some complaints over on the apple forums if you're running 10.2.6 or earlier. As far as I know, the only difference between the drives is, the 106 can also write DVD+R(w), whereas the 105 only writes DVD-R(w). I didn't need the +R so I bought the 105, it's worked great so far. (knock on wood)

Hello. Punx those are both recordable DVD formats. There is not any difference really for the end user. The DVD-R format was approved and promoted by the majority of the DVD Forum (just about every manufacturer) while the DVD+R was Sony and Phillips version of what the recordable format should be. The major difference for the end user is that the +R discs are not as widely supported and they have more problems playing in computer drives and home players. That's about it.

Thanks man I'll check it out. One question I have is. I was editing a video yesterday and I set it all up for iDVD, but then when I clicked 'Create iDVD Project' it prompted me by saying 'IDVD 3.0 or later is required' is this because I don't have have a superdrive installed yet? I'm already running 10.2.8 so I don't know why I wouldn't have the current version.
