Rated 5 out of 5 by JimMijm Lives up to the reviews from several vendor sites
I checked out reviews on multiple vendor sites before buying @W-mart (best price same unit) and it had the most favorable and least unfavorable user reviews of any portable DVD/CD I considered, including more expensive ones. I've used it for a 2 or 3 months now and I have not had any problems with it doing whatever I've asked it to do using a couple of different software apps. I believe it is the best one I could have purchased for the money or, including some more expensive units based on all their negative reviews. I have been using it with the Gateway Nightsky Netbook. Burning will sap the battery quickly but just playing a DVD seems it only does a little. Burning requires both cables to be plugged in but the one cable plays it just fine.

This is a small unit, but it works great! It was well worth the small amount of money spent!
Rated 5 out of 5 by tlcstat Great with Linux and Nero 4 Linux
Greetings, I bought this for my wife's Toshiba Netbook with Ubuntu Natty installed. Works just great! The extra usb power cable isn't needed. Full speed ahead writer to the limit of the media. If you use the Linux OS you can throw away the included M$ disk and do what you already know how to do. And on top of all that - free Site to Store delivery! Thank you Walmart!

Rated 5 out of 5 by whw76 works great with netbook
Rated 4 out of 5 by Gizmo428 Good basic unit for burning CDs & DVDs
I was able to hook up the unit use it almost immediately. USB connectors are included and are stored on the unit. You may need to have two USB ports available that are close together, physically. I already had a version of the included software (Cyberlink) installed for my old internal drive, which is working well with this drive.
Seems to work as well as my old internal drive used to at a reasonable cost.

Rated 1 out of 5 Portable Dvd Burner
Product doesn't work like I thought it would from advertisement. Information says works great from 1 USB port. It does if you want to only play a dvd! If you want to burn a dvd it takes a lot more power than 1 USB port!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Android001 Great portable DVD burner.
This is a great small portable DVD/CD reader/writer. It writes every type of CD and DVD possible. Having some of the fastest read/write speeds, as compared to other products, makes this a far better choice.
The only thing that could be improved is the USB cable. It is very short, which makes placing the device on a flat surface while used with a lap top difficult.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dmc871 Awesome
I got this to pair with a new ultra thin laptop after reading good reviews and finding none cheaper.
I could not be more pleased. Installed fairly easily. It is super compact-less than the size of two
stacked cd cases, and the USB cable clips into the edge of the unit when not in use.
It works flawlessly.
This is a really well-designed burner for real a bargain price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by RicksPlace It's great. Just a plug and run operation. It is a perfect take any were device.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Blackleatherjacket for the price it has been great
great price, I like how the USB cord wraps around for easy transportation with for my netbook
Rated 5 out of 5 by LaLainLasVegas Great burner!
Works great with my netbook! Easy installation. Plug in and go. Burns dvd's fast! I only needed to use one of the cables. Highly recommend!
Rated 4 out of 5 by HockeyGuyJason Pretty good but short cord
I recently acquired a second hand Gateway LT20 Netbook and needed a DVD Burner for it. This item operates using one port. However the cord is extremely short. While most computers could use this only on one port some computers in extreme cases will require 2 ports to draw the power.
Lengthwise Id say the cord is only 5 to 6 inches long at best. So unless you keep everything close by don't count on using this with a USB Extension cord - I tried this and there is not enough power. Have not tried two USB extension cords But Don't want to find out and short the ports out on my laptop.
Okay for pepople who are using a computer without a drive and need a quick fix to install programs on devices without a DVD Drive, otherwise........ Find something else with a longer cord and perhaps an AC Adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by loball Great product.
Only had this for a short time but love it. Only need one of the usb cables. Have used it to play dvds, burn dvds and cds, works great. Really like the usb cable storage and seems to be well made.
Rated 5 out of 5 by miramar43 MET EXPECTATIONS
The unit is slim and cables fit neatly into the side of the casing. The unit is quiet and performs as expected. I found I did not need to use the power cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gamore Works
I bought this to use on my Linux computer but was unable to get it working (I'm sure it could work on it but I am new to Linux so am unsure of what I need to do to get it working) I did test this on a windows computer with good results... I plugged this into my Nook Color and it looks like there might be away of getting it to work with it (I am using CM9 MicroSD Card) other then that the product looks very nice and fits the look of my stuff... I would recomend this to other people. Thank you
Rated 5 out of 5 by dtc62 DVD types supported
Initially my unit appeared to be bad. After reading some user replies I found one that stated his unit did not work with Fujifilm DVD’s, but did on other DVD brands! I had the same problem. Unit works great along with a great price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by deblake60 Not bad for the money
I've tried this on XP and Win 7 machines. Just plug and play. If you already have a burner program on your PC you don't need the software. BUT after you hook yo the drive you may have to reboot your system for it to be recongnized.
I've had this on both desktops and Laptops and works with X32 and X64 bit systems.
I don't know about MAC??
Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasGlitter Was exactly what I needed..am so happy I got it.
My DVD burner had gone out on my laptop and I enjoy making Photo DVDs for my family.That way I can send to them and they can pop into their TV and relive our vacations and times spent together many times over. I had looked at several other external burners, but this one seemed to have everything I was needing and the price was in budget range too.
I ordered online and it was here before I knew it...(Ship to store)
I had no problem installing it and within a few minutes was making 'photo movies' again...I am very happy and well pleased with my purchase.
It is compact enough to carry in your laptop case and the USB cable fits into the case to keep you from misplacing or losing it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Anitaarm Great deal, but has issues
I love the size and price. The issues are with the enclosures- the paperwork doesn't even tell you how to open the unit to insert a disc, and the software doesn't allow you to burn dvds...even though it's a dvd burner!! I'd to contact the company and they said remove the software that came with the product and replace it with what's on their site, but that didn't work either. I ended up having to download multiple burning software before I found something that actually worked for me. So keep in mind what you want to burn before you buy this. But it is a good product so far.
Rated 1 out of 5 by whymenot worst product in ever brought. took 3 hours to copy and copy didn't work in any players

Great product. Software ease to use.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hotrod007 good cd player
Rated 5 out of 5 by john7676 It works fine!
My DVD drive went out and my computer would not do all the things it used to do. So for $32. I ordered this and It did the job fine. now I can still use my 2006 Compaq P.C. for a while longer.
Rated 1 out of 5 by nighthawke07 Doesn't work out of the box
I bought it to burn videos onto dvdr. You cannot burn dvd's until you go online and purchase The Program for more $ To be able to operate it. To me What a scam should come with it if it says it's a portable DVD Burner. So I Returned it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Greg28429 I am satisfied with this product
works very well
