    External Disk Drive for Mac
    Hello all, I have a Mid 2007 Macbook and I would like to burn DVD's ect but I don't have the guff to push it on this notebook. I was wondering what options I have. I looked around and found this one. Does anyone know if it will work with my unit?: - Pioneer 8X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 6X DVD+R DL 8X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 5X DVD-RAM 24X CD-R 24X CD-RW 2MB Cache USB 2.0 Black Slim Portable DVD/CD Writer Model DVR-XD08 - External CD / DVD Drives

    thanks- peace

    That drive should work OK with your MacBook. In the rare event that it doesn't, NewEgg has a good return policy.

    Stick with Pioneer, but on closer inspection, that linked example drive is USB only. Not a bad thing, but firewire or combo would be better.

    Check out OWC SuperDrive DVD, DVD Dual-Layer, CD-R/RW, Blu-Ray Optical Drive Solutions FireWire, USB2, eSATA.
