Hi...I have an iMac with a superdrive. I need to burn a data disc with a file that exceeds 700 megabytes. So obviously I need to use a DVD-R. The question is can the data be read on an older G3 iMac which has a DVD drive?

Thanks for reading.

What type of dvd drive is it?

I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.

I believe what Graphite is suggesting, is move this post from the Anything goes forum
to the General Mac hardware forum.
