    hi guys, please is anyone of you using the newer standalone firewire / usb 2.0 combo connex drives plextor 716 UF (tray loading) or the 716 UFL (slot loading) drives with Toast 7 / Jam 6 under OSX panther 10.3.9... i am confused, because i wanted to buy one and the guy (a friend of mine who is an IT for HP) told me that those models are not working under OSX... do i have to buy the "normal" 716 and use something like an ICY BOX enclosure instead??? firewire and USB 2.0 combo....

    thanks for any help, i need to buy the drive ASAP.

    cheers

    PLEASE, really no one???

    i tried to contact plextor europe, via e-mail. no answer yet...

    here is no service around for plex (i am in slovakia) i tried to find a number for plextor austria, which is the closest civilized country around here...

    i will try to contact them,but i really need that drive ASAP, and don't really want to choose anything else but the 716 UF / UFL, if possible...

    no one using a plex 716 under OSX panther 10.3.9 ? as i said if someone at least can give me that answer (regarding the "older" "built in type", then i buy the old "built in type" one and stick it in an double connex firewire / USB 2.0 enslosure with oxford chip set. (like the |ICY BOX)

    thanks for your help!!!

    p.s. i know that plextools is PC only, but that doesn't matter to me!
    i just need it for toast7 / jam6... please...

    We use Plextor 716 UF (external firewire/usb) with OSX 10.3.9 and Toast 6 all the time... for archiving. Surely if it works with Toast, Jam should be fine... I'd go for it.

    I think the distinction is that some apps like DVD Studio Pro want to see an internal "superdrive" to burn.

    Used to want to see a superdrive. But now they seem to have gotten on the ball and now my external dual layer drives with with DVDSP.
