really?? When I was checking the Apple website, it always listed the drive as DVD-R Never DVD-RW.. I thought it was a hardware limitaition.. If it's a DVD-RW drive, why don't they say it is??
From Apple's website....
What the SuperDrive is up to
An industry-standard drive that reads dozens of standard CD and DVD formats, the SuperDrive writes DVD-R discs at up to 4x speed, reads DVDs at up to 8x speed, writes CD-R discs at up to 16x speed, writes CD-RW discs at up to 8x speed and reads CDs at up to 32x speed. Itís hands down the easiest way to author CDs and DVDs that are compatible with most professional and consumer players, and that you can share with PC users as well. The SuperDrive supports DVD-Video, DVD-ROM and DVD-R, as well as CD-ROM, CD-Audio, CD-R, CD-RW, CDI, CD Bridge, CD Extended, CD Mixed Mode and Photo CD media.
After reading this, how am I supposed to know it (the SuperDrive) does DVD-RW????
