will it work?
pc internal dvd-rw and a mac compatible external enclosure
I would like to get the answer for this as well...
Pick one that the Macs currently use and I don't see why not. Pioneer makes the DL burners in the G5's.
well i was looking at the lite-on stuff or anything that comes on special at staples or office depot. they had one that was like $35 after rebate for a 16x dual layer
i don't see why it wouldn't work. it's only a matter of drivers. it would be alot cheaper to buy an external dvd burner than buy and install a super drive.
thats what i'm going for. you can build a good external dual layer for ~$50 now
I think as long as the drive and drive enclosure are compatible (IDE, etc), you should be fine. Im guessing most of today's drives would be compatible, at least in this sense.
well, you have to figure that an external hard drive on usb/firewire, would use mass storage drivers. would a dvd burner use generic drivers like that too?
I had a lite-on in my older dual 1.25ghz G4... dual layer dvd burner. it worked like a charm. The drive now sits in my PC though
