Read errors

It seems to work ok just playing a DVD but when I try to copy a CD or DVD I get read errors -- I'm returning the drive for a refund.

  • from Windsor, ON

Works Great!

This device is slim and light so it is very portable. It is easy to use and does the job. I highly recommend it!

  • from oshawa, ON

works great

bought this CD drive cause mine on my laptop died and as soon as I plugged it in, I could burn CD's. to watch movies, I had to download the disc that came with the drive and after that I had no issues. this product works great

  • from Orangeville, ON

Just awesome

I purchased this unit in October and when I first got it I was surprised by the size of it it's so small and light. it works amazing I have burned or imported over a 100 cds and no problems plug it in and works. The other software that came with Nero software don't bother downloading it u do not need it overall I highly recommend it must buy if u have laptop without cd drive

Avoid this make at all costs, pure garbage and a total waste of time and money.

Pretty good

I bought this one to use with my new window laptop that doesn't have DVD writer. The package comes with a red sleeve on top of the original box which is pale blue color. Inside has a dvd writer and a usb cable and a NERO cd rom. After first connect with my laptop via the usb, it doesn't work. So I put in the NERO cd rom but still nothing happened. So I downloaded VLC media player and tried to turn this on again and it works great. This dvd player is slim and so light but works well.

Do not purchase

I purchased this product as it states that it will play dvd movies. Well ... I had to purchase and download the upgrade software in order to get anywhere and then it still did not work. In order to access product support, you send an email and then they take their time responding. This was a disaster. I will never purchase this type of product online again. It does not do what I expected it to do and support is not there.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great Product

I bought this product because my laptop did not have a CD driver. It has a great quality in compare of what I paid for it.

  • from Montreal, QC

Great product, fool-proof

I'm not sure where the negative reviews are coming from--since no installation was required. Its inexpensive and functions great! I rate 5 stars

  • from Port Coquitlam, BC

Do not buy

Bought this because laptop didn't have a CD drive. Bought this instead but once I got it the installing process was confusing and when i finally installed all the drivers, audio didn't work for DVD's. Fiddled around and then it asked me to download all these products for the NERO company with no relevance to me wanting to set up stuff. All if was asking was subscriptions to their products and further bringing me online to buy other products. Was not pleased.

  • from Burnaby, BC

great product

super good product, reliable , compact and light also, you can directly plug this unit to a TV and act as a DVD player ( as said in the manual ), I did not try this yet. One important reminder is , you MUST use the small USB cable that comes with the unit, otherwise, it will not work and your computer will not reconize the unit. May be due to the high quality , thick cable that comes with the unit is a special cable. Over all, very good product and highly recommend to all laptop users

  • from Vancouver, BC

Easy to use

Very easy to use, just plug and play and no need power cord.

  • from Calgary, AB

  • from Hamilton ON

Great little device

This is a pretty impressive DVD drive. Its very sleek, thin and modern looking. It was every easy to setup just plug into USB port and your ready to go! I was lucky to get this on sale! Overall a good investment!
