Doesn't work on Macs (as opposed to what was advertised)

Cons: It said it would work for Macs, but I tried many times, and it would not allow me to write to discs. I tried both using the OS's method of burning to a DVD and Roxio Toast. Time and time again, it would freeze. It also seemed flimsy when putting the tray back in. It seemed to not fit or be aligned, and then wouldn't close. I am returning this model for sure.
Pros: Doesn't require and external power source from a plugin. Very small and wis very quiet. I haven't had any problems with it since starting to use the drive. The tuck-away cord is a nie feature.
Cons: Although it doesn't require an external power source, it does require that both USB connections be utilized. You will do yourself a favor if you were to use an extension cord for the tuck-away due to the length.
Summary: I have a nearly 4 year old laptop running Windows Vista Ultimate. The internal CD/DVD drive got damaged by a non-standard size CD that got stuck in it. Because of the age of the machine it didn't make sense to replace the internal unit so I started shopping for an external one. After some quick internet research I decided to purchase this unit.
