Has anyone used or know if the new Pine DVD+/- burner works for mac? Cause Future Shop's latest sale has it at only $249 after rebates. Also, is there any difference between this one and the A06, since feature wise they are basically the same?

It's a rebranded LG drive, it's mac compatible. Apple shipped them in iMacs off and on last year.

you can get a retail boxed LG one for $229 no rebate.

Do you know where I could get this LG for that price?

Edit: Just checked out LG, and I couldn't find a multi-format DVD burner. Are you sure it was a multi-format for that price?

Keep in mind the Pine is a 4x burner....the LG that has been on sale at various places lately is a 2x. I believe both are multi format +/- drives although the LG may only be -R.

The Pine is also a rebranded NEC drive...says so in big letters right on the box and is also detected as such in Toast.

I just bought this drive on Friday and it works fine with my iBook. It's in an external firewire/usb enclosure.

LGE has launched the world's first super-multi DVD writer (Model Name: GSA-

RW, and +RW.

This driver features DVD plus (+)R/RW for video and sound media recording and
DVD minus (-)R/RW for AV equipment compatibility. In addition it complies with
all the DVD standards for DVD-RAM for top-notch large-volume data recording and
editing. It has a seven CD capacity 4.7 Gbyte sized data DVD media in one spot
for playback, recording, and editing.

It can read, write, and record in all CD and DVD media including recording in
CD-R and CR-RW solving numerous problems in one drive.
