Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Great! I love this player. it's compact, easy to update the firmware and very user friendly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from no dvd player comes with trial version of dvd player (decoder/) software; so if you have win8 you'll need an aftermarket player--with other windows os the enclosed software will uninstall or block the current windvd or dvd decoding player.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great products for the price. This Drive is a great dvd /cd writer for the needs of anyone who needs a drive for a new laptop/tablet cross over that does not come with a drive built in. I have had no issues with the drive and the windows 8 software has no issues with the drive and the software also makes drivers a mute issue as the widows software has the drivers you need I give this driver a two thumbs up a great buy!

I have windows 8 and cannot get it to play my dvd video

Asked by: woodle
Regrettably, without more detail, we cannot determine why the LG Super Multi Portable 8X DVD Rewriter with M-DISC™ Support, Model # GP60NS50. The device came with a software installation disc, make sure that you installed that software into your computer. Check to make sure that the unit is turning on, not all computers supply enough power via the USB port. Microsoft released the USB 2.0 EHCI driver software for Windows XP, which is why it was possible to use this driver software with Windows XP SP3. Under Windows 8 operating system, a specific mainboard with nVidia GeForce 7025 Chipset may cause an abnormal operation, so you may want to check your owners manual or contact your computer's manufacturer about these details...^IFV

My portable is not recognized by Windows 10

Asked by: Hoalu

Just tried to use a new LG GP60NS50 on my MacBook Air. The drive does power up, but my system does not appear to recognize the drive. Tried rebooting the MacBook Air, put a CD and DVD in to see if the system would see it - nothing worked.

Asked by: LoLo22
