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.
Summary: I have two DVD burners on my desktop PC (as I copy a lot of dvds). The OEM DVD on my PC was having issues reading disks and the issues were getting worse. Even its writing capabilities were questionable. I bought this LiteOn model as I have used them in the past. It was immediately apparent this performed much better than the OEM one. Easy install.
Summary: This drive was purchased for the use of a computer at Judges Guild Game Company. We are very happy with this purchase and the performance of the drive. We have used it for some time with NO PROBLEMS AT ALL! It is quiet, and fast at burning. Installment was easy, 8-minutes, tops.
