    I believe there is, and that may be the problem.



    The Apple website states Bottomline, the SuperDrive can only write to general use DVD-R discs.

    heres a site that can answer a lot of your questions as regards different DVD formats and has a lot of other useful DVD info

    DVD R and DVD+R are conflicting standards adopted by different manufacturers who are currently fighting it out in the marketplace to achieve their format as being the consumer "standard" for recordable DVD media.
