    Como Drive Question
    Hi,
    Due to lack of replies to my last post, I have streamlined my question!

    I have burnt a Mac format image using my PC via TransMac onto a Verbatim DVD+R DL disc. under TransMac this shows the same contents on the physical disc as the image, but when I insert it into my eMac, it just ejects the drive immediately. Does the Combo Drive in my system only read DVD-ROM, hence the DVD+R I am attempting to use will not work?

    If this is the case, is there a firmware update I can do to get the DVD+R working, -it is at Rev 2.05- or will I have to get a Super Drive and install that instead (I am aware this may be a bit of a struggle getting into the eMac!).

    Please can someone in the know help me out here?!
    Cheers,
    Paul

    I don't claim to be "in the know", nor do I know if there is a firmware update for your particular brand of optical drive, but I do note that you're using a DVD+R DL and I think the 'DL' (dual layer) part may be the problem. Use your eMac System Profiler > Disk Burning to determine what types of media it will support.

    My eMac doesn't have a combo drive, and unfortunately it doesn't tell me if it will read DL dvds. Yours may do so. If it were me, I would buy a Pioneer external firewire optical drive with capacity to handle both +R, -R, and DL disk media.
