It's according to which G3 iMac you have. The following link shows what type of drive each machine shipped with. It wasn't until Early 2001 that the G3 500 MHz started shipping with CDRs. All the machine before that were Read only. You can hook up an external CD burner if your machine does not have one. http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/im...

When I upgraded the DVD-ROM/CD-RW in my G4 550mHz Powerbook with a DVD-RW, I put that DVD-ROM/CD-RW into my tray loading iMac 333mHz. The result? The ol' 333 is now a slot-loader and can burn CDs as well as read DVDs, though I haven't been able to get it to play movies. However, it can read DVD install disks such as OS 10.4, which it happily runs much better on than the OS 10.1 that I had previously put in there. Oh yes, I have 512mb of RAM in it as well. That helps a lot!
