I use this product to burn photographs for my clients. It was extremely easy to setup on my Mac and it is exactly what I needed. Small, lightweight, compact, no power cord needed.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Does this come with a stand? I have seen it pictured elsewhere with a stand. Will it work with mac os x mavericks?
TAI THIEU T  No, There is no stand at all. It works with MAC as long as MAC finds it. The best way is to plug in this device before turning on the MAC system. Windows has no problem. It detects and installs the device as a USB plug-in. It works great.
Jimmy L  I have a Asus vivito tab RT, do you have a cd/dvd external drive that I can purchase and also do you have a usb hub that will work with the Asus?
Andrew R  Unfortunately none of the information provided by the manufacturer at this point indicates compatibility with any optical drive (though external hard drives and flash drives may be accessible).
Shopper  Will this unit work with Windows 8 installed?
Andrew R  Per the manufacturer's specs, the following operating systems are supported: Windows® 7 Windows® Vista Windows® XP Windows® Server 2003 Windows® Server 2008 Mac OS X 10.5
