    I just installed an LG 4163B in an external case. I've tested it with DVD-RAM and iTunes also recognizes it. I used Patchburn4.

    I imagine the newer 4167B which adds DVD-R DL and increases the speed of DVD+R DL to 6x also works. This drive is the only one able to write all the existing formats. It also has LightScribe. That's what I plan to get when I give the other to my mom soon.

    They are inexpensive. Just add an enclosure.

    EDIT: disclabel 2.4 supports LightScribe, but I haven't tried it.
