(Mac) external DVD burner
 
I'm looking for a reccomendation for an external DVD burner that is compatible with Mac. I have an iMac (DV Edition) running OS X (Jaguar 10.2.8).

I searched the archives a bit and found great info on compatibility issues, but no specific Mac brand/model suggestions.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Kenny Ahern

a lot of online internet retailors have customer reviews that you can read. You can also check out consumerreports.org . Once you find a couple brands that look good you can google the model for reviews. Also, go to a store with a good return policy and ask the sales guy if the product gets returned a lot.
I did this when I was buying a new used car, and it made me a lot more confident in my purchase. I also did it with the phone I just bought and all kinds of other crap.

LaCie d2 DVD+/-RW with LightScribe and Toast 6 Titanium found at http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPL...AppleStore.woa
I think this looks like a good product, but I would search around on other reatailer sites and compare. read the reviews.
the site says it requires a power mac G4 500mhz. I think it will work with your computer anyway, but you should call them and make sure.
LaCie has a good reputation. I've noticed most of their products get good reviews when I'm shopping around.
