Hi,

I was looking into dvd burning for the 12" iBook and I was wondering if anybody knows of any other options.

It doesn't look like apple is offering a super-drive for the 12" iBook, and I'm not willing to do anything that voids my warranty...so I'm guessing my only option is an external dvd burner?

Any reccomendations?

Cheers.

Burner: Pioneer DVR-110D... supported by OS X, fastest burner speeds available, supports all the DVD formats except DVD-RAM, lets you set the booktype, and it's $45 at Newegg.
Enclosure: Find one you like with an Oxford (911/912/922) chipset, should be $30-40.

An external drive is a good option. They are cheaper (not taking into account the case that you buy only once), much faster and read/write more formats than apples superdrives.

I put an LG drive into an old Lacie firewire case. Cost me 50 Euros and burns cds 52X (DVD 16X).

Do a drive compatibility search on http://www.xlr8yourmac.com

It's a great resource.
