Disappointing for Mac User

Summary: I purchased this drive to replace an earlier version of the D2 drive that failed after 6 years of use. The new drive installed fine but does not work with my older version of Toast (CD's are all gibberish after burning). Tried to use the drive with I-Tunes but it gave me a laser error message. Looking on the web it seems the drive only works with I tunes using USB and the drive only works with updated Toast software using Firewire.
Summary: It burns data and audio CDs VERY quickly. However, making the cd "label" is time consuming. Once art work is set up, the minimum time to scribe the label is 14 minutes. The result is very professional looking!!
Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Setup, Highly Compatible
Summary: I was unhappy when I ordered this optical drive (because my mac drive broke!) and because there were almost no choices compatible with the mac in my price range. I had no idea what LightScribe was and figured it would be annoying. Surprise! Drive installed in about 2 minutes. It's faster than the original in my mac, makes less errors and if it does make an error, the verifying process FINDS it, rather than humiliating me by letting me pass out defective DVDs.
