Hi,
I just got a double-sided Video Recording DVD-RAM with video on it from Europe. It is in a cartridge. Can I take it out of the holder and play it on my Mac Mini ?

The disc is a "Type 4", 2-3x, RW

The SuperDrive is a:
MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-835F

Thanks,
Andy

The superdrive is not DVD-RAM compatible. Your only hope would be to get an external DVD-RAM drive and connect via FireWire.
