    I was wondering if this product works exactly like the cd reader? I have been looking for an external cd reader because I accidentally had liquid get on my laptop and ended up not getting it cleaned in time for things got ruined. Everything I have looked at are all cd/dvd burners and that ups the price. I just want a simple cd reader so I play games and listen to cds on my laptop. Thank you for responding.

    • A. It is intended to play games and such, but is much too slow to even read the disk if it is a high end game. Example: When I put Sims 2 in I can hear the disk spinning, but it never starts the game. It does this for installing most programs too, and the one game it did play for me no longer works after owning the drive for just a couple of months. I wouldn't reccomend this for anything except playing a movie or opening CDs with documents and files.

    I bought a netbook that didn't have a DVD drive and wanted the option of having one. I ordered this and it is so easy to use. Just connect to your computer with the USB cord (included) and you are ready to go. I have already used it to load some games onto my new computer and it worked great! Very lightweight too! I highly reccomend this!

    I bought this to cheaply replace my desktop's cd drive and I am deeply regretting it. It doesn't play any CDs or DVDs that take a lot of speed to run (Sims 2, Spore, Madden, etc...) . Furthermore the one game it did play that I wanted to use it for worked great for a couple of weeks and has since stopped working. I suspect that it might be good for reading disks with files, or playing a movie from a DVD. For any other higher demand use I reccomend that you stay away from this one.
