Hi

My Imac drive has stopped reading discs (including the disc cleaner i bought which I hoped would fix problem).

I need to buy an external drive to see me over till Santa brings new Mac.

I'm a little wary of the ones that say Mac compatible - software inc. because I wont be able to install software without Mac seeing drive in the first place

Can anyone recommend a Drive I can purchase in UK that will just Plug and Play --
Thanks

Gisty

Any of them,pretty much. No drivers come with any I have ever used, they just get detected by the OS automatically.
I've had Sony and Lacie drives with no issues.
