this video shows how to use the odd64 software which is easy to find from apple called bootcamp. then the superdrive can connect to a windows pc

thought id see what the burner max software does with this and it actually works. tested a verbatim disc 003 burn @ 4x great :-) connected to my windows 7 laptop.

my super drive is HL DT ST GX40N
