  2. By the way, the burner i use is a brand new Pioneer DVR106 and the media is best quality (made in japan) 4X DVD-R. The burnt dvd plays fine on my 2 PC dvd drives. I've also tried a 1X DVD-R and still no go...

    DVD data and DVD-Video should be burned using UDF settings.

    its my understanding there is no such thing as a non mac/pc compatible dvd if burned on the opposite platform
    dvd's i burn on my mac work on pc
    dvd's bunred on pc work on my mac.

    i think its more important to make sure you burn them as proper dvd format as antnymd pointed out.

    DVD DATA (UDF)

    the other option is your powerbook may not actually have a dvd drive.
    are you sure the drive supports dvds

    yes, we have had these problems with Nero before. To the best of my knowledge, it allows you to burn as UDF+ISO9660 hybrid... The thing is, there is no such standard. While it may read on a PC, we've had problems getting those to read on a Mac.

    The best best is to follow what all the others are saying, and just burn as a standard UDF disc. This can have video, data, whatever. There is NO advange to burning as ISO over UDF that i know of...
