Has anyone here used an external Firewire Superdrive (any brand) with an original eMac, and if so, is it plug and play?

Thanks :)

Yes, I made one myself - it is plug and play, but you first need to install an app called PatchBurn (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/25100). :)

I have used external dvd burners before, not an eMac, but I am guessing it'd just work like it does on iMac's and PowerMac's. Anyway, you might need to run patchburn to get it to show up, If you speak to your apple store they can probably help you find one that will work on a mac out of the box, like the Lacie one that comes with Toast lite ;)
