What People Are Saying

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent on all fronts. It has lots of features. It came with lots of software, some of it actually useful. And I got it at a great price. March 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Reliable & Reasonably Priced Very reliable and price was extremely reasonable (spindle of 50 high quality disc was the same price as the drive); bundled s/w is good for burning but not so good for viewing commercial Blu-rays. No issues with burning many types of media (no coasters yet). December 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Drive I purchased this to upgrade my machine with the capability of playing blue ray, and because it was on sale at the time. I've had it for the last couple of years now, and I've had no issues with it so far. I've used several different types of software, and the drive hasn't glitched, paused, or even kicked out a bad disk. I've used all forms of media. If I had any issues it was software wise that I easily corrected. September 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent multifunctional burner The BH12LS38 is an excellent blu ray burner that also provides LightScribe support. I can burn cds, dvds and blu ray discs as well as LightScribe labels. Installation was easy as was updating of firmware thanks to the LG website. Drivers downloaded automatically. The included software although a few versions behind current retail is useable for most required operations. All in all a great multifunctional drive. October 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Value, Good Performance Plugged in to replace a dead BDRom drive. Worked immediately, no changes needed. So far I've used it for playing BDs and DVDs 2-3 hours every evening for about a month. It's quiet, solid, and works great! January 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good BluRay drive ImgBurn software works quite well with this drive, even allowing you to burn data files to a BD-R. Since I purchased this drive to replace one 3 times as expensive that wigged out, and because I got it at a discount, I have been most satisfied with it. Best Buy's price does not reflect its current (discontinued) status, however. July 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice drive I have used this drive for a couple of months now and must say I have been very pleased. I have successfully burned several Blue-Ray discs as well as single and double layer DVDs. I have enjoyed watching my Blue-Ray movies without a hitch. I can't comment on the supplied software as I have Nero 10 Platinum installed and that is the software I have used to watch movies and burn my discs. All in all I must say that is is one of the best LG products I have purchased. It does exactly what it is supposed to do without any hesitation. March 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid drive I only got this particular unit because it was the only one the store had. Lucky break for me. This drive is great. I've burned several types of media with it so far without problem, but where this thing really shines for me is in it's ability to extract audio CDs! I listen to a lot of audio books because I drive a lot for work. I hate bringing my original CDs because they are a bit bulky, and they are expensive to replace if damaged, so I like to copy them to my MP3 player. Unfortunately, I have one particular series that doesn't like to rip very well, about 3 of every 5 CDs has huge problems ripping the last 1 to 3 tracks, leaving the resulting files unusable - until now! This drive will certainly slow down with these problem tracks, but the resulting files still sound perfect! To LG I say "THANK YOU for building such a reliable drive!" I will certainly buy LG equipment again. March 6, 2012

Answer: 
Yes it does, Simply unplug the player and submerge in a glass container with Liquid Nitrogen. Stir with a metal spoon gently. Slowly and carefully pour in a cream mixture w/ fruit over the nitrogen player filled container.

remember to use protective gloves and eyewear.

Next remove the ice cream / player mix and serve, garnish with mint if applicable.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are experiencing problems with your drive. None of the internal LG drives require firmware updates. When you cannot play a movie or burn DVDs, normally you will need to update their PC software. Nothing related with LG.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. This unit does support 3D video. You will need an HDMI 1.3 cable and 3D playback software. You can also go to www.cyberlink.com and look for the link “3D/BD advice” to see if your computer is 3D compatible.
