Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable! Worked correctly the first time and ever since, especially with blank blu-ray media. Solid product, all the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny!!! I have had my BE14NU40 for a while now. I can't say enough good things about it. Most of all, I enjoy the portability as I take it with me between home and office. It has never failed me. I always have a quality finished product. I produce videos of church worship services and it does everything that I could want it to do. Because of the large volume of storage needed for archiving this data we use it to burn "M" discs which allow us quick and precise access access to whatever we need. I would but it again without hesitation. Great value for the money!!

I'm trying to update the firmware in this drive with windows 10. The update program will not run. I tried to get the program to run on several different computers but it will not run on any of them. Please help

Asked by: Dan2603
That link goes to nowhere, a blank MS page. Win10 updated today and now does not read my external LG, I was going to update from the firmware on your site, nothing for windows10, I think I am not the only one running win10 at this time, you do have win7, and possible 95 as well though. So, no firmware updates? Will the disc that came with it work, the one with the way outdated cyberlink bloat included? I loved this burner, until this morning. Hoping just a glitch, b/c I have had zero issues since mid Dec, this is the first, and it occurred when MS10 required a restart for todays update. ANy help?
