Hi all,

Thanks.

You can use Toast with an external burner. In order to get iDVD to work with an external DVD burner, you need a hack. I don't remember where I got the hack from.

DVD Studio Pro will work with an external DVD burner.

there are 2 little files called hfurz and pfzurz (i think) that will let you burn a) disk images
&
b) to external drives

You need to have those files in your home directory and then control click the burn button, hold it and then let go after a while i believe.

The files were posted on a message board, google for 'idvd external drive' and similar strings, and you should find them..


Happy burning!
