Thread: iDVD with external dvd burner?
03-01-2005, 06:57 PM #1EvoMacGuestiDVD with external dvd burner?
I just recently got my mac mini and starting to play around with the programs that came with it - mainly iLife 05. When I got my mini I decided not to go with the CTO route via apple.com, instead I got the standard 1.4 model from the apple store.
I was throwing around the idea of getting a superdrive built in, but for $100 I didn't find it that needed (especially since I have a decent DVD burner in my PC). Now after playing around with some of the features of iDVD I'm starting to think twice about it. I know that once I load iDVD it says that no superdrive is found and will not be able to burn the DVD project. I was wondering if their was a way to either link my current burner which is on my PC to my mac and use as a DVD burner compatable with iDVD (don't think that would work) or if I were to purchase a external DVD drive, would it detect the dvd burner and let me create projects and burn them to DVD medium?
Thanks in advance.

In iDVD there is an option to Save as Disc Image (under the file menu). This will render the whole dvd and save it as a img file. You can burn that file with Disk Utility or Toast on an external driveDon't forget to use the new User Reputation System
