My dad is looking for ways to transport audio back and forth from work. I know I could burn a DVD-R for him but it's not really as efficient as he could just re-write over it and add more music with an RW.

Yes it can/ But Apple's software does not fully support RW yet so they don't really mention it. Toast for OS X writes DVD-RWs just fine

You can follow <a href="

The Super-Drive in my iMac and all other Macs is made by Pioneer. It is a DVD-RW DVR-104 so it can burn DVD-RW discs.

It can write DVD-RWs fine here. The drive seems to be smart enough to differentiate DVD-RW from DVD-R and burn accordingly. I write to RWs all the time with Disc Burner and I can fool iDVD into burning to DVD-RW as well...by putting in a DVD-R, ejecting it, and replacing it with an RW.
