Great Product!

Maddison, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this product for a while it has been nothing but greatness! i needed it for my netbook and it has preformed wonderfully. The only problem was when i first plugged it into my usb port and i pushed the button to open it, it didn't open up right away and i thought it was broken but really my computer was just recognizing the new equipment and wouldn't allow it to open until it was scanned and all that jazz.

works great for tablet pc's with no cd/dvd

skahld, Amazon
17 November 2010
  • Summary: I've had this for a few years and bought because my Toshiba tablet did not have a cd/dvd drive. It was one of the few drives that was self powered from USB. There is no way I could use this on a plane if I had to plug it in! It used very little battery life. Works fast and dependable. Very durable also. It's been to all 50 states with me and through TSA many many times. Never skips a beat! However, it is not a burner - reader only.

if I had of known

BIlly, Amazon

  • Summary: I thought I was getting a great deal. But I could have gotten something for half the cost that has writing capabilities. This is just a DVD-Rom, not a DVD writer, rw. I shouldn't buy things when I'm drunk.

works only about 20-30% of the time, and not on Windows 7

John, Amazon
5 July 2010
  • Summary: Does not work at all for Window 7, just like an earlier review stated (currently using an Alienware M11x laptop) I had an older laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad) running Windows XP, and for this computer, it would read CD's about 20-30% of the time. The rest of the CD's, the Targus would make some initial noise, then stop. Tried unplugging and replugging the Targus with the same results.

Not compatible with Windows 7

K. Correll, Amazon
28 May 2010
  • Summary: This is a nice external drive and works well with Windows XP or Vista. However, it does NOT work with Windows 7. If you have a computer using Windows 7 or if you plan to upgrade to Windows 7 then this is not the drive for you.

Disappointment

George L. Miller "mgeor5", Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: I was very disappointed with this product. When I plugged it in to my PC it overloaded the USB power and when I tried to buy a power supply from Targus, I was told that they no longer supplied them and I had to buy one from a third party source at twice the price plus an exorbitant shipping fee. Now it sometimes works and sometime does not.
