Will the rm475e work with a Mac?


May 16, 2015 • Yes I was pleased to find that indeed the HP rm475e works wonderfully on my mid-2009 MacBook with OS X 9.5 Mavericks, where the internal optical drive is not functioning properly! Its Mac compatibility is not mentioned anywhere in the requirements schematics on the original packaged box either ... how odd, huh! LSDexitOzAmericaDotOrg

Usually its just plug and play on the Mac. The software with the .exe is for Windows. I'd just plug it in via USB and see if it shows up on your regular Mac burning software.

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

I have a MacBook and my CD drive is demaged so I'm using an LG external DVD drive. At first it registered upon plugging it in. Now I can't see it. Any ideas?


Go to apllications the utilities and then open system profiler once open click on disc burning and see if your default mac drive is showing up and if the LG is showing up. If it is showing up the drive should work.

The problem you may have is that the macbook will normally burn to default drive but you will have to select the LG first to burn to that

No DVD sound with my LG GP08 Super Multi Drive


Hello, Phil,
I have the same problem on an Asus EEE Pc... Is your Toshiba running Windows 7? This is maybe the reason, because external drive is not compatible with this OS. That's what I heard from LG...
The drive works perfect on my Asus laptop with XP!
Please keep me informed if you solve this problem.
Regards,
Andre

3inch cd into macbook dvd rom


Since Macs are not compatible with 3' cd's the only way it could work is if you had an external cd drive. You can even get them cheap! Here is a link to one on a website. I never used this website to purchase anything but its just to show you what you might consider looking for!

I personally hate how macs are not compatible with 3 inch cds but I hope this helps you out and good luck!
