What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent addition to my MACPro. Bought this to add Blu-Ray burning capability to my MACPro. Installation was super easy. Burning is working great through Toast Titanium. I have not tried out the LightScribe features yet. One strange thing I have noticed is that the drive "accesses" itself without any disk being loaded periodically. I think this is a shortcoming of OS X Snow Leapord though and not the hardware.

I am using Windows ten my MODEL NUMBER: BH10LS30 SERIAL NUMBER: 696745 is recognized by windows then not then it is and not and then it is, forever. I know it works when it is recognized and stays recognized, Got it in 2012 and never did a firmware UD

Asked by: CleticBarb
We appreciate your interest in this Optical Drive. This model was designed for compatibility with Windows VISTA and Windows XP. Windows 10 does not have DVD/BluRay playback software included. A user would need to download the Microsoft DVD app, or another 3rd-party program to view DVDs. The Cyberlink Media Suite, once installed, should provide for DVD/BluRay playback capabilities. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
