    I want to buy an external usb2 dvd recorder.
    Do I have to buy something special in order not to have any problems to use it with mac, or I can choose the one I want without thinking about compatibility problems?
    Will I connect it and be ready to burn? Is there any need of drivers or related stuff?

    You can buy any available external DVD burner, and no special drivers are needed.

    I attach it and that's it?
    Will I see it instantly in finder?
    Toast will see it directly?

    1. Yes.
    2. No, unless a DVD medium (empty or not) is inserted into the drive. It behaves exactly the same like the internal disc drive of your Mac.
    3. Yes.
