M-DISC Compatible - Write Once and Read Forever
Compared to other recordable DVDs on the market today, M-DISC offers superior reliability in data storage that provides the permanent optical data storage solution. Once written, the M-DISC can be read or played on any quality DVD drive that supports the common DVD+R/RW format. M-DISC Media sold separately.
Note: Apple's DVD Player application only works with an internal optical drive or the Apple's external SuperDrive. To play DVDs with your drive, we recommend the free VLC Player, which can be downloaded from http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Rating: 5/5 Works Perfectly on my iMac May 6, 2014 Just plugged this drive in and it worked right out of the box. I was able to play a DVD-ROM game, play a DVD, and burn some video of a grade school play to a DVD-R for Grandma and to a BD-R in high definition for me, both using Premiere Elements, no problem. Great not having to worry about a power adapter. The only con I can find is that it is so small and light it does slide around on the desk a bit when loading and unloading if you don't hold onto it.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
