    Hello, I'm own an iMac 24, and I'm trying to find an external burner that can do everything I've listed below:

    Burns Blu-ray DL DVDs
    Reads HD DVDs
    Burns all DVD types
    Burns all CD types (as slowly as I wish)
    Has LightScribe

    Do you know of such a product? Thanks so much for any advice!

    Which areas do you have trouble with on your list? The LG BE06LU10 ...

    ... seems to meet all the requirements you specify, save for I don't know anything about any hardware limit that would prevent you from burning CDs at arbitrarily low speeds. It seems to have gotten pretty good reviews....

    Be aware that the iMac will be able to write data Blu-ray disks using Toast (and maybe others) but not movie Blu-ray disks. There will also be no way to watch Blu-ray movies on the iMac. I don't know if the same holds true for HD-DVD.
