Basically there isn't any reason for not to work ...but ..you can encounter some issues in being recognized..and in follow you will need a driver for it ...My suggestion is not to use it on USB ..and use fire-wire connection if it is available on this external writer....The rest is simple ...to me able to write without issues..I suggest also to install a separate burning software ..other than the ones present in MAC ..Try ..NERO for MAC ..it is a easy to use and complete software ..and will allow you to do dvd ..mp3...data ..and all kinda other formats ..
Here is a link ..
http://www.brothersoft.com/downloads/nero-mac.html
just to make an idea..
The rest ..like I said ..try to see if it is seen right the way ..or it needs a driver...and ..when you burn on it ...select it from the list ..cause by default the MAC will try to send the job to its own writer..
Good luck !

I restored my computer's HD using LaCie. Now, my Macbook won't boot us using it's own HD, just LaCie


Hi SuzanneHow did you do the install? It's important that you do the correct procedure. First you should have installed the OS from the disc thaty came with your MacBook. It would have then asked you how you wanted to procede. One of the options is to restore from a back-up or from another drive.
You pick the Lacie and let it do iots stuff. As a rule, when that finishes the machine restarts from the new drive.
What you can do to check is shut the machine down. Hold down the Option key (alt key) and then press the power button to start it up again - don't let go of the option key. After one or two moments you will get a grey screen with a two icons. One will be your HD and the other will be the LaCie. You then choose which onwe to start from and that should be that. If you only get the Lacie showing up then it measn that you do not have a system on the internal HD and that it needs to be restored from the CD/DVD.
Let us know what happens.

Firewire connector doesn't match


It sounds like you may have one of the newest MBPs that doesn't have a firewire port. If that is the case, it is still possible to connect firewire peripherals through a Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter cable.

Is your MacBook as fast as the Lacie Rugged Hard Disk is?

Because solid state drive wasn't available on MacBook Pro at the initial time when it launched. Hard drives on all current Apple laptops are equipped with Sudden Motion Sensor technology. In fact, the Apple laptops that came with Sudden Motion Sensor are: All Intel-based Apple portables such as the MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, PowerBook G4 computers starting with PowerBook G4 (12-inch 1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (15-inch 1.67/1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (17-inch 1.67GHz), and iBook G4 computers starting with iBook G4 (Mid 2005) have Sudden Motion Sensor technology. You MacBook may not have come with that technology that could be the reason you are unable to connect it.

MacBook pro 08 idvd will not burn to blank -R dvd


Go click on the apple logo at the top left of the screen. Then click on About this mac. Then click on More info. Then click on Disc Burning.

It will tell you what DVDs the optical drive will burn. If no info shows up, then you got a bad connection or need to clean the optical drive laser lens or your optical drive is about dead so you may have to buy a new optical drive.

The Super Drive needs to be replaced. This error cannot be fixed with software.
