62. Can iDVD2/3 be used with external Superdrives?

No; at present (Feb 2003), an internal Superdrive is required.


When OWC first released their external Firewire Superdrive, they made available a patch that allowed iDVD2 to burn using that drive specifically. Pressure from Apple resulted in the patch's withdrawal.


There is a nosuperdrive patch that allows iDVD2 to run in the absence of an internal Superdrive, but it does not permit burning to an external one.
