You can use it, just not burn anything if you do not have a system that does not have a DVD burner. However, you could, instead of purchasing a Superdrive and upgrading, just get an external burner!

Are you sure? Unless there's some kind of workaround, I believe iDVD refuses to open unless it detects a superdrive.

You can uses it, but a message comes up saying that you cannot burn!
