    It's a Yamaha burner that we just got in at CompUSA. I set it up last night and it's awesome! It came with Toast 4 which I think is the best CD mastering program for Mac. I love that it can do like every possible file system for CDs... everything from standard Mac HFS to ISO9660. After doing some reading I was intrigued to find out that ISO9660 format is a totally platform independant format that can be read on any computer from Mac to Windows to Unix, etc. For the next LAN party I'll be downloading a bunch of custom mods and maps for games and burning a few copies in ISO9660 format so all my PC buds can use them too.

    DVD RAM drives do not burn CDs, only DVDs. It's strictly for archival and mass backup purposes. It's a totally different laser.
