What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WORTHLESS It took me HOURS and HOURS to realize this useless device would not connect to my Macbook Air. DO NOT BUY THIS unless you have a PhD in computer technology because you'll NEVER figure out how to get this worthless thing to work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable and intermittent Had problems out of the box, but when Best Buy tested it, it was ok. Only used it 2-3 times over the past year and it seemed like each time it gave me some type of problem, but after different attempts it finally would work - not this time. It simply would not get recognized by my computer. Tired different cord and same thing - powers up and you can here it, but nothing. So frustrating and unreliable. Will not buy any LG DVD writer again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient and Easy to use I bought this item about two months ago and I was like plug and play. My computer was able to recognize it and download the necessary drivers and then it was ready for use!

I have a MacBook Pro, circa mid-2009, with an integral SuperDrive. That drive is dead so I purchased the SP80NB60. Advertised as compatible with my Mac, it comes with PC-only software. Which Apple/Mac software will bridge them?
