Hello,

I second the request for up to date suggestions. Most if not all of the best drives are discontinued or unavailable today. My Pioneer DVR-118LBK does a clicking sound when I hit the eject...

Hello,

To add some very specific info: I was in the market for 46-50 inch TV, and ended up buying Panasonic's 3D version (the ST line) instead of the regular S line. I don't care about 3D and...

Hello,

Unless someone here has your exact Mac model and one of those exact hubs, my guess is that you're going to have to try one. Both companies are good, pick one at random! :-)

Hello,

Another piece of evidence, if we needed more. Get yourself a good hub, and powered one (plugged into the wall).

Good luck,

Hello,

When I spoke of specific model, I was talking about hubs, not readers. The problem is with the hubs, not the card reader, as Sossity said hers worked fine when plugged directly (as I'm...

Hello,

Try your card reader plugged directly into the mac and see how it works.

Try to avoid hubs as much as possible, or get yourself a good (expensive) one. Read the reviews and make sure...

Hello,

Just want to make sure you're using the word "hub" correctly. A USB hub is a device that has one USB "male" plug, and many "female" plugs. A splitter in other words, allowing you to plug...

Converting AVIs to DVD video on Macs?

Hello,

I've tried Toast and iDVD to do this, with disastrous (huge blocks) results every time. I've seen a few apps suggested on this site, but they're for PCs.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Thx for the input. Guess I'll have to decide if I really need the Blu-Ray read (not tempted to go BD for archiving yet)...

Hello,

Thanks for the info. I have the crappy Hitachi in my Mac Pro, but I must have been lucky: it performs badly with bad discs, and very well with good ones.

Anyway, additional question:...

I know my situation isn't scientific at all, but still worth sharing: I've burned more than 600 of those gold JVC/TY discs so far. All on my 2009 Mac Pro with the built-in DVD burner...

Hello,

Just to confirm that Amazon (at least the .ca) still ships the good Verbatim disks (blue and orange for the DVD-R). It's much cheaper to buy two spindles of 50 than one spindle of 100.
