Won't Burn DVD's

Rebecca A., Newegg
4 April 2013
  • Summary: The drive comes in handy on machines that don't have an optical drive and doesn't need a power supply which is convenient. It burns CD-R's without issues but almost never passes verification when burning a DVD. Ever.
  • Pros: Small. Light. Quiet.
  • Cons: Will not burn DVD's reliably.

Works For Me

Benjamin Z., Newegg
3 December 2011
  • Summary: I like the color, style and design.
  • Pros: Well there is not much to say, other than it worked and installed instantly under Windows 7 when I plugged it into the USB port. I did not need the extra power from another USB port, but some older laptops might. I purchased it for an Acer One Netbook, and it worked great.
  • Cons: None.

Faster than expected

John M., Newegg
14 October 2011
  • Summary: I haven't tried LightScribe (and probably never will since the discs are so much more expensive). Drive works plug-and-play with Windows 7. I don't know what's on the accompanying CD (seems ironic that the stuff to make your optical drive work would be on a CD) but you don't seem to need it.
  • Pros: Much faster than I thought it would be at burning CDs and DVDs considering it is USB powered. Also, very cheap.
  • Cons: Occupies 2 USB ports (1 data + power and 1 power only)

Works great with OS X

Ian M., Newegg
29 September 2011
  • Summary: Regarding lightscribe software, there might be something better out there, but I found one that got the job done for the moment.
  • Pros: Works just as expected in Mac OS. Tried burning audio CD from iTunes (on OS X 10.5 and 10.6). iTunes recognizes the drive perfectly. Worked on an old iBook G4. Lightscribe worked great. Excellent price.
  • Cons: Lightscribe sofware for OS X is a bit of an adventure. Try LaCie's version - its free.

  • Summary: just very annoyed at the product's inconsistency. how can it work flawlessly on one machine and render lightscribe useless on another? i'd give it 5/5 if other than the laptop issue.
  • Pros: everything works on my desktop (windows 7)
  • Cons: lightscribe does not work on my laptop (windows 7). this is very frustrating considering i have to burn labels from pictures from the laptop and not my desktop. i can't figure out why it won't read the lightscribe function at all from the laptop.
