What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It just doesn't work... I have to agree with the other one star reviews on this one. I've tried it both for my Macbook and laptop with Windows 10, they both simply don't recognize the portable. After troubleshooting for a day, I'm just going to have to write this off and get a better one. My mistake for listening to a Best Buy sales associate. Later LG, waiting for over an hour for customer service doesn't exactly inspire me to use your products again.

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?
