It works on my Mac Studio, so I'd say yes. It's labelling as being Mac-compatible

Last two times I've ordered from Target and the item was actually out of stock, they offered to ship it for free. YMMV.

Not sure about that. I have an old external CD R/W with USB. Plugged it into my chromebook and... nuthin' :-(
Thanks for the heads-up. The item's specs didn't say chrome OS support. I guess that's the problem. I've never had chromebook. I don't like imposed restrictions.

Quote from Parato Optimal :
I do that but no power brick is required.
It depends on the internal DVD burners. The 5.25-inch DVD burners will need the power supply. I picked up a bunch of those DVD burners over the years when people discarded their desktop computers. I don't know about the smaller laptop DVD burners.

Buy the USB to SATA adapter accordingly. If you're going to convert the 5.25-inch internal DVD burner, buy the ones come with a power supply. You will need it.

Right, I thought we were talking about laptop optical drives. A desktop/tower drive needs power. Laptop optical drives don't need additional power. One USB 2.0 should power it OK.

I've been shooting wedding videos for a few years now and lately I've been thinking about getting an external BluRay burner just because once in a blue moon I'm asked about discs and I have to tell them to take the video file to an online seller but if I could sell them at $10-$15 a pop and have a minimum, I'd make my money back quick and even have a way to make some extra money from my work.

I remember back in the day when some software were on 3 inch CDs in order to install on the computer.

In for 1.

Quote from Swampthinq :
What is quadruple?
4 = quadruple.

The comments below DO NOT apply to everyone, only the guy I was replying to.

Think about this, the guy has hundreds and hundreds of DVDs. How is he going to make a backup copy of just 1 dvd?

two options:
1. buy one $20.00 8x burner, rip each dvd to ISO iso from it, then write a new disk with the backup.
2. buy two $20.00 8x burners, 1 for reading and 1 for writing.

Both options above are painful if you have that many DVDs and you want to back them ALL up.

Clearly if he uses option 1, he needs a lot of storage, but at least he will have an ISO backup, and then also burning a disk backup.


Therefore, if he does have the HDD storage available, and a PC that has some SATA ports. he could spend the same 40.00 dollars and buy 4 of these.

https://www.amazon.com/Memorex-24...B002G1WYLE

From there, you can rip multiple DVDs at once at a much faster speed, and turn around and burn multiple different DVDs at once, the key here being speed and # of operation at once.

Holds a pint just right but the pint weighs a bit much for the flimsy tray.

Quote from MrGone :
Not necessarily, they degrade over time, you'd essentially would have to keep backups of backups and store them in a super clean environment. To top it off are easily lost in natural disasters.
https://community.linuxmint.com/s...w/safecopy

Safecopy is the friend of anyone with iffy cds and is comfortable with the Linux command line. It will recover anything that can be recovered from a CD that is stored in less than "super clean environment" (like stuffed back on a spindle with the rest of the written CDs).

In reality, I'd recommend two (duplicate) external HDDs as a replacement, preferably with some sort of PAR2 data on each. Of course, I managed to have an issue with a (super slickdeal) 6TB external drive and safecopy couldn't recover 32MB of space (.005% of the data, but that drive is shot).

Cloud: should be good as long as you keep paying and the company feels like staying in business. When they decide to shutdown, expect a month's warning at best. Don't expect to be able to transfer the data anywhere. Also hope you don't have data caps if you want to download.

Storing at home (or perhaps an offsite location). Pay all at once, no ongoing fees (except for possibly storage). No guarantee your data is valid (few people can afford a spare server to test their backup data, although you probably are storing in on a windows filesystem, so can check that. I had no idea my 6TB HDD had any data missing). Vastly easier to restore data (unless you are using CDs/DVDs/Bluray, then expect to get tired swapping discs).
