Summary: This is a great little burner for the price. Plug and play, no disk was needed.I burned some home video DVD's and a few music CD's. It works flawlessly. Just make sure your computer uses SATA not PATA or you will need to buy an adapter. All in all, I think this was an excellent purchase to replace my old one.
Summary: I've had no problems accessing it as sr0 in Linux and no problems with Windows XP recognizing it. Burns disc great under both systems. You can't beat this for combination of quality and great price.
