DVD Burner compatibility

I'd like to know if a generic DVD+RW burner will work under Panther in iDVD. I'm thinking of using a BenQ DVD Burner available on TigerDirect for $49. Does this sound like a good idea, and would I have to do some modding to create iDVD compativilty?



And therefore I am the king of DV!

Wrong type

IIRC, DVD+RW support was *just* added with Panther, and it is fairly rudimentary. I believe you need DVD-RW for it to be able to work in the iApps et al. I could be mistaken, but I think that's the case.
