Flimsy and Unstable
I bought this cd/dvd reader/burner because I needed a cd/dvd drive for my mac air. I did not get the apple product because the reviews said the apple dvd drive is unstable. Reviews for LG were better than Apple's. Additionally, I thought I can use the LG portable drive for my Windows laptops as well. I tried the LG driver both on Mac and Windows and in both O/S, the drive is unstable -- the light goes on for a few seconds and then goes off and is no longer recognizable by the computer - both in Mac and Windows. To get it to work, I have to plug/unplug the USB cable and really quickly get the driver to read the CD. I can't even burn a file on the disk. I am returning this product and replacing it with a more robust disk reader/writer - have not decided which one yet.

LG is trying to get rich!
I bought this to burn music. I was planning on using iTunes and WMP to do so but both will not work with this drive. I installed the software that comes with the drive and you have to pay more $ in order to burn music! This thing cost me $90 and now i have to pay more money for software?!!? I used to like LG until i bought this thing.
Buy something from another company, this is a waste of money if you want to burn anything.

I bought this drive for my new M11x Alienware Laptop since it does not come with a disc drive. Skeptical about ordering this, for the price and possibilities of it breaking (much less than an inch tall). It exceeded my expectations, it is fast, small, easy to carry and move, and comes with a nice bag for storage and transportation.
