Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works well I purchased this about six months ago, and I've been able to burn Blu-ray and DVDs equally in under an hour for most movies that I have created on my computer. One I have created the movie on my computer, burning it to a Blu-ray or DVD is easy with my LG M-Disc burner.

Does this support 100GB M-Discs?

Asked by: c240amg
Our 100GB M-Disc meets the Blu-Ray specifications for a TL BDXL and therefore should work in every BD-XL burner. If it does not work, there is a problem with the drive not the 100GB M-Disc.
