I have an ibook g4, I have been messing with imovie lately and want to burn a dvd. Unfortunatley my ibook doesn't have a dvd burner. Does anyone know of a decent external dvd burner for an ibook, either usb or firewire??? Also does anyone know how a movie burned onto a cdr-r using imovie looks? And last question, if I burn a cd-r using imovie, can it be played on a windows xp machine?

To put the movie on a cd you can export the movie to quicktime...and you will be able to watch the movie on a pc

you can also get a usb2.0 to IDE adapter (about 30 $/€) and just buy an internal burner, which is usually a lot cheaper...

btw, you can also use idvd to burn dvd's using an external burner, you just need a little patch for it.

Do a search, and you'll see what i mean (normally idvd only works with internal superdrive dvd burners, but not with external ones!)

I have a Pioneer DVR-107D in a generic external Firewire enclosure. The drive cost me about $100, the enclosure about $50; watch for good deals at dealmac.com. The drive has performed flawlessly with the two Macs I've used it with.

From what I understand, Firewire 400 tends to be faster in the real world than high speed USB, even though the theoretical limit is higher for USB; get a USB/Firewire enclosure and have the best of both worlds.
