NOT Mac compatible

S.G.C., Amazon
16 February 2014
  • Summary: From the item page - "Compatibility Windows 7 (32/64-bit), Windows Vista (32/64-bit), Windows XP, Mac OS X 10.4 - 10.6 Mac systems natively support the CD/DVD portion of this product." I should have read the one-star reviews. My error. This doesn't work with an iMac, even with both usb plugs plugged directly into the computer instead of the 7-port hub I use. The Buffalo website doesn't answer email, or even have the Mac software available for download.

Works fine.

Arka, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: I often repair computers for clients as a side job, so this was necessary for burning recovery discs, etc. The speeds are about what I'd expect, if not better. The storage solution for the cables are really what caught my attention. At first, I thought I was going to break it when I started removing the cables from the housing, so I gambled on it and yanked them anyway. Turns out they're just a bit stiff when you first get it, and need a little breaking in.

Low priced option with software, works with PC and Mac

Andrea Polk, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: Budget priced, USB powered and comes with its own burning software, this DVD writer drive also works with both the latest Windows and Mac operating systems. The worst I can say about it is that it's USB 2.0 and noticeably slow at only 8x speed. This drive couldn't be simpler to install. Unbox it, plug it into an available USB port your PC or Mac and it should automatically be recognized, and universal drivers installed.

it is what I expected

  • Excerpt: I use this DVD drive with Mac mini. So far the performance is fine. When I first hooked it up, I couldn't get the disk content to show up on the screen...after a few tries, just when I gave up and dialed for tech support (of course), it suddenly started working fine. It's been good since. Sometimes I do have to use both USB cables.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Quiet

  • Summary: It works exactly how described. Even when I burn some CD/DVD the second USB cable was not necessary. Perfect so far.

Fast, portable & reliable

Tony M., Amazon

  • Summary: This DVDR plugs in and works with no software. There are no extra cables needed (though you have the option of using a standard power cable). It's worked well with all of my media.
