MAC DVD-R questions


My mom thinks I'm cool
I have 2 questions concerning DVD burning in Mac OS X Panther.
This is for my friends computer, I am pretty bad at mac stuff in general (it took me two hours to get his machine to use a static IP, though d-link might be to blame for that)

1) If he wants to buy a DVD burner, is mac compatibility a serious issue or are most burners going to work?

2) Would he be able to use DVD X COPY using a windows emulator? If so, would it work well?


I may actually be insane.
1) I have a Pioneer DVR-108 (16x, Dual Layer, etc) in my Mac, it's not at all supported by anything. Run an app called "Patch Burn II", reboot, and voilla, iTunes, iDVD and all the other apps recognise it as an installed superdrive, and I can write DVDs.

You may want to take a look here for compatible drives: http://forums.xlr8yourmac.com/drivedb/search.drivedb.lasso

2) I haven't a clue. I see no reason why it shouldn't work, however VirtualPC is hideously slow unless you run a nasty 9x-series operating system, or NT4. I'd recommend checking http://www.macupdate.com/ for apps similar to DVD-X-Copy.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
