"I bought this drive based on my needs and the system requirements as stated on the box: "Mac OSX 10.5.4 or higher" My Macbook Pro is current. The drive will work, Mac recognizes it. The problem is that LG doesn't support Mac. The included software is all Windows based so no lightscribe use without finding other applications that will work with OSx and the drive.
Kit includes power supply and cord, as well as usb cable for hookup."
"I recently was throw for a loop when I discovered on the packaging and documentation that the system requirements were for a Pentium 4 3.4 GHz or higher. My PC has a Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.93GHz. I went through with the install and found no problems after burning several DVDs. Everything works like a charm and I am extremely happy.

"Just purchased this product at Best Buy. Installed to my Desktop PC because I like the Lightscribe technology and it makes it easier to store CD/DVD's when you can label them directly. Only issue I have is with the install CD. Didn't work properly so I went direct to Lightscribe and downloaded the program for Lightscribe from the site. Once I loaded it the device ran like a charm no issues. Have had an LG optical drive before at work and we had same issue there with drivers but had no issue after we downloaded from appropriate web site. Overall product is easy to use and very nice, setup is simple--wish it used the USB for power also--but having external power is ok too. Will also be using with my Laptop when neccessary. Excellent product for the value."

"I recently purchased this drive because my cpu drive wont write any more. I had it hooked up and working in a heartbeat. It is very easy to use, sits easily on my computer desk, and is compatible with Windows 7(my OS recognized the hardware immediately and installed; it did however, cause a problem when I inserted the actual installation CD because the hardware was already installed, but it was easily fixed). I love the lightscribe feature and use it all the time instead of writing on the discs. That featrure was a MUST for me because I have it with my other drive that doesn't write any more. It burns very fast. I love it! "Life is Good" again!"
