Product Reviews
Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 26reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bought to record backups and old Audio CDs My old DVD writers were not working on Windows 10. So I needed a replacement. Windows 10 is a huge problem with writers in general and this one is working fine for me. The device tray is like the provided with any laptop (not mechanical). It's ultra light and small. Very portable. I didn't have to install any soft or driver for it to work. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] September 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works very well. Never a problem. Bought this about a year ago and carry it with me everywhere. I have a PC that needs an external drive. It takes a beating and always works. Any system. Anywhere. It also successfully burned Wii games. One of the few that do it. If it does not work for you... it is USER error. Things can not be more simple. Return your computer... not the drive! Plug it in and it works. ALWAYS. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] April 12, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't Work Dvd does not show up on my mac anymore after 6 months of use [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] January 23, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Software issue I have purchased 2 of these over the last year. I thought that I must have damaged the 1st one as it quit working almost immediately. Recently, I purchased another one only to have it quit the day I brought it home. It seems that when you install the included software, it automatically checks for BIOS updates and begins installing without asking and giving you time to shut down any other programs. I don't know if this is only an issue with Windows 10, but if you buy one, DO NOT INSTALL THE LG TOOLBOX or you will wind up with a throw-a-way. December 19, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by doesn't work with Surface and Mac post 2015 Very disappointed that it takes so much power to consume! Can't return it anymore. I guess you get what you pay for. December 4, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't work in Mac OSX Most discs don't get recognised, some do but don't play/read … very disappointed. November 3, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does not work with windows 10 Beware, this does not work with windows 10. It will show up on Computer but will not be accessible. October 24, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Works if you can get the drawer to open. I bought this 6 months ago and have only been able to use it a couple of times because the drawer doesn't want to open when pushed. And then there's the Windows 10 problem!!! October 7, 2015
