Inneffective Coaster

toastwarrior, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: This product is non-functional. It worked once and never again. The light glows briefly, then stops and shuts off as my (windows 8, and less than a year old) computer refuses to recognize the device. Also, LG constantly badgers me about updates. Oh wow... I totally want all these awesome updates from a company that apparently produced a CD drive that doesn't work. Either mine is defective, or this particular product was intended as a decorative item.

Gets the job done

ROBERT J., Newegg
9 June 2014
  • Pros: Small, light, rips and burns disks.
  • Cons: Mac users: First, thanks Wesley J. (1/11/2014) for the workaround on the empty drive not being recognized by the Mac Finder when empty. Here's an even more convenient workaround. (I'm using it with a Mac Mini):

Portable DVD player/writer

BERNARD F. CROWLEY, Amazon
2 June 2014
  • Summary: This DVD player/writer is primarily designed to be portable and is best suited for notebooks and lap tops; however, there is no problem hooking it up to a desk top machine, and it comes with software for both PC's and Mac's, working with a whole array of Windows operating systems from Windows 8.1 on down. This unit does not come with its own power cord, and a powered USB connection is required; it will not operate if plugged into a USB bank that is not powered.

YES, IT DOES WORK ON MACS

Esther LINDSEY "esther_in_ohio", Amazon
13 May 2014
  • Summary: I don't know why people say it doesn't work on macs. It has worked on my old MacBook Pro with Lion, our newest (with all bells and whistles) mac laptop with Mavericks, and our newest desktop iMac (loaded) with Mavericks too! We first bought it because buying an external external disc drive was cheaper than getting the one fixed in the MacBook Pro.

User Review

  • Summary: Overall it does a very good job for the price. Feels a little flimsy and the cord is short, but that seems the standard for cords these days. Good buy.

Inconsistent Use With My MacBook Pro

Jacob, Amazon
30 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought one of these from my local retailer because I needed to burn 50 music CDs for wedding favors and didn't want to put unnecessary strain on my 7 year-old optical internal laptop drive. Enter this product. It seemed good out of the box, but my MacBook Pro only recognized it as a CD drive about 1/2 of the time I tried to burn CDs.

Wouldn't install

18 April 2014
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Wouldn't install on Windows 7 SP1. I tried LG online support and they couldn't help either. Definitely not newegg's fault.
