Brilliant on vista but its a paper weight on Win 8
Cal1234, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
5 December 2012
Summary: Up until I upgraded my os I loved this drive never had a problem. Since I upgraded I cant even get windows to recognise it, it literally wont find it its as if its not even there I can find it in the BIOS connected through the sata drive but that is the only sign of it being there. I have looked for hours on the web and found no sign of a fix.
Summary: I've had plenty of LG drives before and they seemed to work fine .. not this one though! I always try to give things the benefit of the doubt and maybe it had a rough ride in the post. I've tried two of these, and both had different faults ... one failed completely after a couple of weeks saying it didn't recognise that there was a disk in there, and the other would only write to cd and cd-rw. I sent them both back (Amazon are fantastic at returns).
