LiteON SHM-165P6SX and MacBook Pro?

I just bought MacBook Pro. It unfortunately only comes with a internal DVD writer that is unable to write DL.

I would like to make DL discs.

I have chosen this external LiteOn drive after lots of research on this forum. It is the external version of SHM165PS, as it is good for backing up protected CDs, as well as being able to do region free. These two are my major considerations for a burner.

It appears that the LiteOn company website is poor and does not have information on this exact model. The internal version SHM-165P6S spec sheet does not indicate any information regarding use of this product with a MAC.

Can anyone comment if this unit will work with Mac OS 10.4?

Thanks,
Jason

Hi,

For setting the drive region free, it has to be connected to a Windows machine.

Can anyone comment if this unit will work with Mac OS 10.4?
Does your computer support external DVD writers at all? Check with Apple and the manufacturer of your disc writing software. If external DVD writers are supported, then there shouldn’t be any problem using the drive.
