Looking for new Combo Drive

in Genius Bar edited January 2014

I'm in the market to replace my internal CDRW drive with a CDRW / DVDRom drive.

Will OSX allow any PC drive regardless of make or model? Or does it have to be Apple certified. I do a lot of burning in Toast, iTunes, and would like to play some DVD's. Thanks!

    I'm actually looking around as well for a good Combo drive to replace my DVD-ROM/CD-ROM. The one I've set my sights on is the Toshiba SD-R1102. I figured this one out by reading the user reports on <a href="http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/"; target="_blank">xlr8yourmac</a>. You should check the user reports for Combo drives for your system and read about compatibility. Apparently only some are fully compatible with iTunes and Finder burning. Hope this helps!

    This is what I replaced my stock DVD drive with. Works great, except that you need to look on e-bay for them now. The 1102 models have been discontinued for the faster, 1202 models. The 1102 drives aren't the fastest, but they're compatible with iTunes and Diskburner under both OS9 and OSX.
