    Hmmm..I think Iread something about iDVD only allowing you to burn 60min for some reason...I can't remember why it doese that...may have to have iDVD 4..or do you already have that?.....either way...it's iDVD....not your burner or your dvd....I'm pretty sure at least...

    Now I haven't done much with burning DVDs yet..I have a superdrive..but have only burned one dvd..and haven't used iDVD yet...but I assume you could possible set up your dvd in iDVD..then trassfer it to something like toast?...or am I just talking out of my hine?....so..yeah....alirght...hope that gave you some ideas or something.

    Specs:
    2 x 3.0GHz Quad-Core, 6GB OS X 10.6.8 | 15in MacBook Pro 2.2GHz OS X 10.6.8 | 64GB iPad 2 WiFi
    Cool
    I remember reading about the 1 hur limit also. I use iMovie and Toast 6 to make and burn my DVDs. There is also a 1 hour limit. Which I am not sure where is it is. I am using an external LaCie DVD burner. I have iDVD which I can create DVD material, but i can not use it to burn, even with the hack I found.

    With all that said, I believe there is a software limit of 1 hour on burning DVD video,

    i know that in iDVD 4, they extended it to 2 hours. they made a big deal about how it now has the same mpeg encoder as DVD Studio Pro and it could now hold 2 hours. but that's only with the newest iDVD

    Looks like I need to get a superdrive or buy a system with a superdrive in it.
