Does anyone know if you can get better quality burns off of another brand of external DVD burner rather than the internal Pioneer DVD drives that are standard on Apples? If so, which brand? I am having image quality issues on the DVDs I author on Apple's internal Superdrives. Thanks.
External burners are internal burners in a box. :-) Pioneer makes good burners and so do Plextor and Nec.
Image quality is determined by the quality of the source video and the MPEG encoder. If you are having problems with playback then apart from the burner itself, the burner's firmware, quality of the DVD-R media and the burn speed are important factors.
