    "reasonably priced external CD/DVD BURNER for Mac!...Yes, you can playback DVDs with this ASUS EXTERNAL CD/DVD writer. And while the tray is still empty, you can use the onscreen display to eject it, but when it’s actually loaded, that method doesn’t work, so it has to be manually ejected using a pin via the pinhole. ...DVD external drive...I can finally watch my DVDs. Great purchase. Great price."
