    I have a new Sony SR11 HD camcorder and I never realized I could not burn a DVD. Bought the LG GE20 with assurance of its compatibility. This of course did not happen.  If I download the Roxio it will then be able to read the software?? 
    Is it better to just upgrade  CD ROM capacity to the superdrive? Does anyone have experience with the superdrive?d

Is it compatible with OS 9 or OS X? If you have OS X and your disc is for OS 9 it won't work unless you have Classic installed and running. But it doesn't sound like you have Classic because I believe it would have tried to install in there by now on it's own. So when software says it is Mac compatible I always check further to see if it works with OS 9 or OS X.

You have to download a seperate driver for mac such as Popcorn. You can get this at Roxio.com

I don't know of any freeware but if you look around I'm sure you can find some

How to download a cd from a portable device into mac


Do you mean "how to burn files from a portable device to the mac" instead? You will need burning software like Nero or other software that is compatible with your mac. The process includes copying the files from the portable device to your mac hard drive then use burning software to burn the files to a dvd or cd disk. I don't know about mac but with a pc, you simple drag and drop the files from the portable device to your hard drive using Windows Explorer.

Are you using the same blank cd / dvds are before for burning?

You might want to check LG's support page to make sure you're using the latest drive firmware version.

Here's a link to their page.


There are two GE20 models so make sure you choose the one you own.

Let me know what happens after the above.

Hi Chris,
OS X supports DVD burning natively within the operating system.

I'm trying to scan a photo from my HP700 onto my MacBook and I have the CD that came with my printer - but still can't do it. The Mac does not recognize the disk.


try downloading scanner driver compatible with mac os here. though unlikely, it is still possible the the cd inculded with your scanner does not have mac os compatible driver.

Just got an lg ge20 not working on mac


I wish I could tell you that your Mac is compatible with the LG GE20 20X DVD Burner but unfortunately it is not.

Here are the system requirements for this burner
LG GE20 20X DVD Burner Technical Specifications

The CD included is not the only item that is not compatible with the Mac, it is also the DVD burner itself. It is only windows compatible I'm afraid.

However, I do know that the Apple.com online store, has a comparable DVD+RW burner, the
LaCie 22x d2 DVD+RW with LightScribe
which will work with your iMac.

This is a genuine incompatibility issue.

If you had an Intel iMac, there actually is a workaround process where virtual machine software, like VMWare Fusion or Parallels, could be installed, with a version of Windows XP, Vista, or 7, display as a 2nd terminal within a Mac OS X desktop.

What's makes this effective, is that the LG GE20 could work with a windows virtual machine and because software like VMWare for example, can share devices, including optical CD/DVD drives, the Mac could share that drive with the windows virtual machine.

But since you do not have an Intel iMac, unless I am reading the description of your Mac computer(Apple iMAC Mac Notebook) incorrectly, the LaCie burner information, I provided above, would be the best option for your model of iMac.

Again, if I have described your model of Mac incorrectly let me know and I will be glad to assist further.

Regards,

-Mactechtrainer

LG GE20 DVD install on e-Mac Panther


Were the jumpers on the drive set to Master or Cable Select?, depending on the age of the e-mac the LG GE20 needs to be set to Master.
