    It should work. It is an IDE drive, and the only issues Apple has is if you use a drive that IS NOT Apple approved. I think you should be fine. But then again, I'm a newbie switcher

    Welcome aboard, by the way!

    I thought only Apple authorized DVD burners worked with iDVD. Did they change this because of all the hype?

    No iDVD doesn't have anything to do with hardware.. you can run iDVD with out a DVD-R... just cant do anything with it
