I could have kept the extra one but I tried to do the right thing and almost regretted it.Disappointed in that part of the deal since I have always used B&H for all my needs, am reconsidering it now - But this product is great if you need the drive.
It is inconsistent ..sometimes it works, sometimes not...
But, since there is no alternative...whaddya gonna do? My wife and I needed to burn a CD of some music for a party we were attending.
Since the i Mac did not have a CD/DVD burner or drive, we were at a loss as to what to do to capture several songs for the party.
For a modest price we were pleased with the USB Super Drive both for the current transfer of music and as an extra drive for any future i Macs or Mac Book Pro's we might purchase in future years. I ordered a new Macbook Pro and didn't realize that it didn't contain a cd/dvd drive (silly me), so I had to order this for my photography business.
Hoping to fix issues with the slot-loading optical drive on its Macintosh computers, Apple has recently issued three separate firmware updates.
