We run a Toshiba TE2000 Laptop and with Windows 98 it ran well (photos and music). Work has just converted me to XP and I haven't used the burner since so I can't comment on its XP compatibility.
Hope this helps.
Yeah thats probably exactly how you would do it. These days, you can get firewire and usb cases too.XRFPV8 said:for a pc a external DVD burner is no problem but make sure you have USB II capability’s other wise its to slow the cheapest way to do this is you buy a normal DVD burner I would recommend a Pioneer DVD106 then you buy a external box it slips in any ide hardware should cost around $330 to complete..Don’t know much about Mac's but I think they have a different interface so it might never work on both, they must have USB II PORTS tho so you need a driver for the DVD burner to run on Mac.You will also need different burning software for your Mac unless you have a windows conversion on your Mac..
