Summary: This drive does the job nicely. It works fine under Windows 7. The 3 users (2 of whom claim to be 'experts') that gave poor reviews simply have not updated the firmware on their drive. It takes a couple of minutes to do and then the drive works fine with Windows 7.
Summary: This was bought 2007, and it turned out it doesn't work on Windows 7 - it won't play dvds. I'm not the only person who has this problem. Not so very impressed by Samsung and I try not to buy any more products from them
