Chapter 23. Understanding and Using Data... > Burning DVDs with Apple's SuperDrive

Burning DVDs with Apple's SuperDrive

Apple's SuperDrive is a special case because along with CD-RW and CD-R discs, it can also burn DVD-R discs that can be used to record data and can be mounted on the desktop or played in consumer DVD players when you burn them using iDVD or another DVD-creating application. When it was first released, this drive was available only on the top-of-the-line Power Mac G4. Now, this drive is also available on high-end iMacs as well as all Power Mac G4s except the lowest-end.

NOTE

Just as with CD-RW drives, third-party DVD-R/DVD-RW hardware and software are available. However, because Apple's DVD-R technology works so well and is included with Mac hardware and as part of Mac OS X, Apple's technology is the focus of this section.
