    I have no personal experience with it, but many folks have said that they really like this one:

    Samsung Ultra-Slim Black Optical Drive, M-Disc Support, MAC OS X compatible (TSST SE-208GB/RSBD)
    $33 plus free shipping
    https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Ultra...ical+drive+mac
    It both reads and writes.

    If you only like genuine Apple stuff, they still sell their external Superdrive:
    $79

    I agree with Randy. The Samsung external optical drives are inexpensive and work well. I have one that I've used now for years - an older model but it still works with my 2017 5K 27" iMac.
