Combo Drive ready for OS X out of the box ??

I want to upgrade the original CDRW in my G4 533, and at the same time add DVD. So I'm looking for a Combo Drive (CDRW&DVD-ROM) that will work right out of the box. I've seen where some require software modifications to get them to work with OS X. Is there such an animal ??

I checked there, and it seems like all the drives listed need some sort of software mod to get all the apps to work.

i think you would be surprised at how many work with toast and the finder. i took my old creative 12x drive and my mac saw it right away.

Montano,


In my internet wanderings yesterday I came across something that might be just what you are looking for. It is used, but is an apple drive. The price seems pretty good to me. Check out the link.

ouch! for 80 dollars you can buy a COMBO drive, seriously from LG, 48x24x24 with err i forget on the dvd read speed. but 80 dollars for any cd burner, unless its a future product and is like 64x, you should not pay more than 60 dollars. period.
