What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh, not worth the hassle. It's an ok drive but without any software it's almost unusable. No driver dl was necessary as win7 automatically recognized it and installed drivers. It read the BD fine and listed contents of the disc but I couldn't watch any movies because none of the media players on my machine worked with it so I have no idea how it performs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked great until it didn't anymore Starting getting read errors, thought it was the discs but read fine on another WH14NS40 and other BD manufacturer. Kept using hoping just flakey discs, eventually became too unreliable to use for valuable data. Drive was 9 months old with not a lot of use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well... it's a great piece of hardware, but added software is uninstallable- it just loading and nothing happens after that. I would never say that LG will disappoint me like some cheep NoName producers. Add something that works or add nothing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent BD Rewriter I purchased this to replace a failing DVD R/W in a computer. It installed easily, runs like a champ, and I've had zero issues with it. It's a great burner and an excellent value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good. No errors even on cheap media. So far movie playback has been flawless. The few data discs that I've created have burned correctly (verified by third-party data copy/move/verification software in addition to the burning software) and are working as expected despite being on cheap house-brand 4x BD-R media. One of them was even created at 12x write speed by accident and is fine. Hopefully the drive lives up to reviews of it and its' 16x successor, so far it hasn't let me down at all aside from cost of related software (which it was clearly labeled OEM, so not the drive at fault).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NO DRIVERS = Retractable Coffee Holder :( It maybe the best BD burner of the world, but without drivers in the package (and sry I don't give an heck about if it a oem or not) when we buy a product it must come with all it needed to the said product to work properly period. So the driver are not in the pack, what is worse, they are even not here too only 4 versions of the Firmware but no drivers at all, even if I find some others driver it a big guess, it maybe work or not but for sure not to it fullest extent. I'll return this product tommorow and find go find something decently packed with all the nessessary included :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best BD Drive for the Money This drive is quiet, responsive and fast. I am now able to enjoy BD Disc's as well as CD's and DVDs without having to worry about if my drive will play it or not. As for writing, its quick, accurate and reliable. It has no problem working with my creation software or my player software. The Audio and Video output are Top Notch. I don't know if I'll ever use the M Disc feature, but it sure is nice to know its capable of reading and writing those disc. Overall, this is the best money I've spent in a long time, I can't say enough good things about this performer. Kudos.

This came in a desktop that I recently purchased, but it does not play anything. I can find where the PC registers the DVD disk and files, but I can't play any DVDs. I also cannot play Blu Ray disks. What do I need to do so I can watch my movies?

Asked by: Jimangle
You will need to install (probably purchase) software for burning and for playing. Nero, DVDFab, and other software will write or burn. See here for a few BD playback sofware packages (http://lifehacker.com/5870977/five-best-blu-ray-playback-suites). For burning, a couple of lists can be found here (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2407553,00.asp) and here (http://blu-ray-burning-software-review.toptenreviews.com/). I use (just downloading because I had the same problem) potplayer for playing BD discs and IMGBurn, DVDFab, and Nero for burning.
