It should work fine. Any drive should work, I used a NuTech in a PM with full functionality, and have had it in a USB2 external case. Just do the following:
First connect your drive and run 'drutil list' from the command line.
Then copy the vendor and product ID's from the list to the appropriate
places in the profile. Your updated profile then needs to be copied to
one of two possible locations, /Library/DiscRecording/DeviceProfiles or
~/Library/DiscRecording/DeviceProfiles. You will most likely need to
create the DiscRecording and DeviceProfiles directories.
