    External DVD burner help
    I have a Sony 710 USB/Firewire drive. I want to use it with my PC and Mac. I found out I can't have the firewire hooked up to the Mac and USB to the PC at the same time. Anyway I could work around this?

    There are probably several solutions to this, but one of the cheapest would be a USB switch.,653,210,212

    I really don't think you are going to find any good solution for hooking an optical drive up to 2 computers at the same time even if the drive enclosure has USB and firewire output. A switch is really the only way.
