Which portable do you have? I am interested in knowing which Apple laptops
don't have problems reading DVD-RW and DVD+R/W, since my iBook only seems
able to read DVD-R, as I mentioned earlier.

I am quite interested in getting feedback from other users (especially from
those in debian-powerpc) regarding this issue.

I'm unfortunately not up to date with the new technologies that are
coming. If you could describe their differences in a simple way, I'd be
very grateful.

Thanks again for your feedback, Rogério.
