I have an iBook G4 and I have recently been trying to read a DVD+ R DL disk with a couple of projects on it. But every time i put the disk in the computer just spits it right back out.

Does anyone know how i can fix this? Or maybe get a software to read it?

Does your DVD drive read DVD+R DL?

Apple -> about this mac -> more info -> then locate what type of drive you have.

iBook G4's were released seven years ago and early models came with a combo drive only. There is some debate if a combo drive can actually read a DL disc. I would have thought it should read the disc, but perhaps not. What disc were you using? If the iBook is less that 867MHz an d you poppped in a Leopard disc, that would answer your question.

It has 1.33 GHz and idk because i am only running tiger. I was thinking about upgrading to leopard but the disk itself is pretty pricey. My computer also does not say that it can burn this type of disk, I was just wondering if there was some way that I could make it.

No you cannot make it and to do so without purchasing the Leopard disc is illegal and not for discussion here.
