Yup. That’s why I read the negative reviews on Amazon.

Unfortunately, all the LG burners on Amazon receive negative reviews which are not very confidence inspiring, and OWC’s drives are all LG drives in OWC's boxes.

Not only that, OWC’s drives don’t connect to USB-C.  They’re all USB-3 which by itself is pretty fast, but connects to a USB-2 port on my OWC dock.  Why OWC doesn’t provide a cable to USB-C is anybody’s guess, but it doesn’t.

Researching this makes me feel like the most current computers simply are not expected to use an older technology like DVD/Blu-ray.  And, yes, I understand that the Cloud is the way of the future.

Add to that one must acquire software to use the device.  Generally that means Roxio Toast, which I’ve owned for years and like, but it’s up around $85 now, close to the price of a burner, altho Apple does apparently have its minimal driver free at the Apple Store.
