Not so good with Mac
on 11 March 2013
Bought this item as read/write DVD drive for a new retina display MacBook Pro.
It looked good and played DVDs fine, but when it came to burning a CD or DVD, it simply gave me an error message every time I inserted a blank disc.
Not to be deterred, I connected it to my backup: an older MacBook Pro, in an attempt to burn a DVD using DVD Studio Pro. This time the blank disc was accepted and recognised, with no error message. So far so good. However, on attempting to burn the disc, the external device was not recognised. There may be a way round these issues, but found nothing on the Samsung support page and frankly I don't have the time to dig further.
I am now returning this item .
So, if like me you didn't want to spend £65 plus on Apple's proprietary external superdrive, think twice before buying one of these instead...
