    Does it matter if the DVD-R has a purple tint on the bottom write surface? Does it have to be silver? Also, 3X isn't an option to burn so I've been using 2X do you think that matters at all?

    Thanks for the link... but unfortunately I'm on a Mac and can't use the program that converts the ISO's to wbfs files or does the splitting. Unless I'm missing something?

    Question regarding the above... Does the USB device need a WBFS partition AND a FAT32 on the same drive as two separate partitions to play games? Or can the USB just have a FAT32 single partition?

    all good, thanks for the tip. I have Virtual PC but unfortunately none of the apps like that work through to the Mac usb drives so I'd definitely need a native version for PPC 10.4 :(
