Thread: best external dvd burner

Hey, just curious about some external dvd burners available for the mac. Im getting a iBook, and want the ability to possibly burn dvd's at some point in time. I looked at a couple threads, and someone mentioned something about iDVD not supporting external burners, is this true? Also saw some type of rumor, of apple (or pioneer) producing a external superdrive? Are there any truths to these?
Thanks in a advance

iDVD does not support external DVD burners. I believe that DVD Suudio Pro does support external DVD burners. As for a DVD burner, I have a LaCie. Which works very well for me.

I have an NEC 1300 DVD+/- R/RW that works great for me. You should be able to use supported internal IDE burners, just put them in a FireWire enclosure.
