I have a 2005 LG Super Multi external USB DVD drive that I used to have on a PC and now want to use it with my Mac tower (latest OS installed). But I can't seem to locate the MAC drivers for it and the system doesn't recognize it. Does anyone know where drivers can be found or is this just a situation where it won't work on a MAC? The model is GSA 5163D - purchased in Canada.

I think there is a utility called patchburn that may help

Google it and see it it lets you use that drive

agpyle -- Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I have the same DVD burner and a new Macbook. If you found the Mac drivers (or some reasonable substitute), I'd appreciate if you coul let me know. Thanks!

Likewise in search of driver and SW for LG. Lightscribe functions but only limited capability. SW with drive was Windows only. Any assistance appreciated...
