I've had this drive on two computers, a Mac Pro at work and another at home and it never goes smoothly. Either it can't read the disc, or says it can't get information fast enough or the drive doesn't show up. I am beyond frustrated at Mac's ongoing attempt to dictate to its users what it feels is best for them. I have to be able to burn discs for work, and with the latest driveless Mac Pros and the USB Superdrive, it's an exercise in futility. Maybe I'll find a six-for-one sale on blank discs. I have been through three USB superdrive units.
When converting CDs to add them to my iTunes library, it would randomly spit out the CD and fail to read it even discs with no marks or blemishes then cause iTunes to crash. At first I thought it was my install of macOS and iTunes, so I did a full system reinstall, but the issue prevailed again after a few minutes of use. So it seems that not are there only software issues, it also damages discs by leaving a scratch near the centre hole, so be careful if you do buy this.
