Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Needed New computer lacked a DVD drive. Only need on occasion and this units specs fit the bill. Has worked fine to date with no issues and has met my satisfaction.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible hardware If there was an option to give it 0 stars I would. Since I have bought this, I could only use it once without errors. It spins and spins, the computer recognizes it for 30 seconds then disconnects. What a complete horrible product..... will never buy LG again. If they can't get a dimple dvd writer to work, what will they do with the other things they make?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died After 6 Months I bought this for my wife, who needed an optical drive after she got a new MacBook Pro. Despite only occasional use and reasonable care, the LG just clicks and makes noises.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not heavy enough for a paperweight I can't get it to work with my Windows 10 machine. I've tried restarting and using different apps, but nothing. It makes a lot of noise like it's trying really hard, though. So I guess D for effort? Should have read the reviews before I purchased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't play DVD' tried different drivers. Junk Well the title explains everything. Spent a few hours trying to figure it out and no luck. Will be returning it hoping the computer store will take it back as I bought it to play DVD's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Device for the Price This drive is powerful, fast and rugged! It's outlasted so called bargain deals that ended up corrupting Audio/Video libraries. TWICE! But every time I switched back to GP60NB50 without any problems.

Can you play regular DVD's on this hooked to a TV

Asked by: Hmom
I apologize, but no; this Optical Drive will not be able to playback Video DVD discs without the use of reading software. A television does not have the means of installing such software. The software must be installed on the hard drive of your computer system.
