    Good price, and it works on my Vista system, But I have a DVD drive on that computer. This was offered with my netbook purchase, but it is incompatible with Windows 7. I even called the company, Targus, there is no upgrade available yet.

    I purchased this to go with my Acre netbook, which had Windows 7 starter. Had no problems getting my Microsoft Office software downloaded with this product. I don't know why some gave a poor review because they couldn't get it to match up with Windows 7. It worked fine with mine. I highly recommend it for someone who has the Acre with Windows 7 starter.

    I purchase a netbook about three months ago, and love it. There was only one thing missing. I needed an external DVD Drive. I purchase this product on line and love it. It works great and the price was right.

    Even though it says not sold in store, it was sold at my local Walmart in Citrus Heights. I needed one for my eMachines em250 so this works. I was able to recover my machine with discs I ordered from Acer. Tried installing programs and it works well too. This unit will play DVD movies with VLC Media Player and Media Player Home Classic Cinema which are both freeware. There have been some reports of this not working on Windows 7, but it works 100% on my em250 without a problem. It works best when plugged in to a netbook with the A/C on but If you have it plugged in without the Netbook A/C, it may drain your battery faster then you think. You cannot finish a movie on a 3 celler , but maybe a sixer or a niner. One big thing that I would like to mention is that I do not reccomend this for kids who have netbooks, the design is too flimsy and the door can break off easy. Its meant for people who are gentle with their electronics. Overall a good product, but you get what you pay for I suppose. A complaint I and others would have is the short cord. You can use a longer cord with this if you have one. I encountered no real issue in file transfer speeds between shorter and longer cords. Overall I am satisfied with this unit, but it has that feeling that you can break it within the first few weeks of ownership if you do not take care of it like a precious and delicate china dish.

    This is useful for me because I insert the Windows XP, Vista or 7 in this device and select the option boot from USB CD/DVD rom when I have this kind of computers like in the following examples 1- When mini laptops (netbooks) doesn't have CD/DVD rom by default because there is no space to install one of them. 2- When regular laptops doesn't work the CD/DVD rom. 3- When computers doesn't work CD/DVD rom. Etc etc... I used to do it through regular USB (pendrive, usb flash) but it was too much work and most of the times doesn't work so I end up buying this USB CD/DVD rom which works excellent for my needs. Also the USB cord stores under the unit. I've uploaded the pictures.
