    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    I purchased this item to go with a netbook I also purchased. Sometimes it hesitated and I had to unplug it and plug it back in again. When I looked at others on the Internet I found the prices to be much higher. Overall I would recommend this IF you weren't using it all the time. If you can use it to load software that requires a CD or DVD but load it so that you don't need the disk all the time. I didn't use it to play movies but I'm sure it would be fine. Given its flimsy nature I don't see it lasting a long time unless its handled very delicately.

    I bought the Targus online for $39, which is a good price compared to $59 instore at WalMart and Best Buy. The top is flimsy, very thin, as in almost paper thin. The Targus is not for throwing in your book bag with your net-book. It's toooo delicate, that is the first problem. The second, it does not come with a windows media decoder, so one can not watch DVD's, unless one goes on-line and purches a decoder program for $15. That raises the price to $54 !!! I took it back and exchanged for a Lite On External which in the store costs $49, yet online costs $59. The Lite On may be bulky, and needs an external power scource, which I prefer, but it works !!! At speeds of 24X compared to 8X read speed on the Targus. The Lite On also plays DVD's from the get-go. The Lite On is also a lite-scribe burner !! The Lite On may be a small block, yet the block is durable, and can travel with you. Targus is too flimsy to take out of your house, and you cannot watch movies. This is the second time I have bought a Targus product only to return it to the store. Both times my response to Customer Srvice was "Targus is cheesy," not durable. I will not purchase a Targus product again

    The Targus DVD-ROM is a reasonably priced USB 2.0 attached device for your computer. I purchased this specifically to install programs and music onto my netbook. I successfully installed several music CDs and some programs onto my netbook. The small form factor makes it easy to take with me as needed and since it works off the netbook power I don't need to worry about lugging a power brick with me.

    I bought the Targus External DVD Drive to use with my netbook. It's small, easy to use (love the holder underneath for the USB cord), and it works like a charm. Great for adding software on CDs to the netbook. It's not a CD or DVD writer, but then my netbook has an SD card that will take care of that. Found the best price at WallMart.com, and the Ship to Store feature was free, quick, and hastle free.

    Great little optical drive - truly plug and play. Convenient for travel. The cable fits nicely in a slot on the bottom of the player. This was purchased to install software to my Dell mini netbook and it worked perfectly. Excellent value. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to play DVDs or install software - it does not burn DVDs or CDs.
