    External DVD writer issue
    I purchased a BYBOO External USB 3.0 Slim Optical CD DVD RW Drive for my iMac and having issues burning a dvd.

    iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)

    It does not seem to be working right. When I put a blank disk in, this is what Disk utility shows.

    No mount option or anything. When I burn it seems to be working right but then throws an error with no real info to it. Any help will be appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum.

    You cannot mount a blank disk. You have to burn something to it for it to become mountable. We'll need the error it's showing before we can help with that.

    However, this site is closing. This is a post from Slydude:

    1. The owners have announced that this forum was to be shut down as of December 31, 2017. I suspect that the only reason we are up today is due to it being a holiday.

    2. Dennis (a.k.a dtravis7) is in the process of setting up a new forum and several of the current admins are working to set up a new site. A domain has been registered and forum software purchased. The guys are working feverishly to get things working as soon as possible.

    3. The new site is not ready for member logins yet. If you would like to be kept informed about when the new site is up and ready Join Denis's Facebook group or PM me an email address and I will add you to the email list.
