hi



i was wondering if adding the Pioneer DVR-111D in an external housing it would be recognised by my mac mini?



its currently cheaper than getting an imac



is there any software id need to update or settings id need to change? or will iDVD just run with it?



any help greatly welcomed, cheers

    Just make sure you get a good quality enclosure that supports Macs. I have an LG GSA-4120B DVD burner in a Lacie enclosure connected to my Mac Mini and it works great. It's the most reliable burner I've had. Support for the iapps is generally not important because idvd saves to a disk image, which you can burn with other programs and you can drag itunes playlists direct into programs like Toast. I would go for a firewire enclosure btw.



    Check out www.lacie.com - they have a clearance section too. The drives in them are easily replaced.
