Summary: This product was to replace a similar drive that had lasted 3+ years. The Targus drive just stopped reading and writing, but the drive letter does still show up. It's like the laser or the motor servo died. Far too short a life-span.

Summary: The Targus external drive is awesome! It runs CDs when I need 'em, sounds reasonably quiet, doesn't break the bank, and even has a little cord that tucks underneath when you need to plug it into the computer.
Summary: Recievd this as a christmas present and tried to use it and will only play certain dvd's. I tried to download the stuff I need and could not find it. Will return it and will never buy anything from this company.
