Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue Ray burner I purchased this about a month ago. It was easy to install and easy to use. Nice to have a product that is easy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LG External Blu-Ray drive I bought this Blu-Ray drive a few weeks ago and it came with Cyberlink(CL) software. The CL software doesn't work very well. It played ok with standard DVD. But I found I had issues with standard Blu Ray. It would not play. I figured out why. A software bug forced an important message back to the primary desktop screen. Once I OK'd the message it finally worked for Blu-RAy display of the movie. Apparently this CL software has minimal functionality and you must purchase more expensive products to get all you want. CL support is not great. CL said it's not their problem, it's LG's problem. Neither is LG's support that great. LG recommended I download a free package called Leawo. It only plays Blu-Ray and standard DVD. I want to be able to PLAY/READ/WRITE/COPY and CONVERT media. Needless to say I am very disappointed in the software supplied with the unit. You would think that LG/CL would have beta tested their product combo to see if it works properly???? The audio CD player played but not as the tutorial indicated (Missing software functions) I could not convert to MP3 at all. Disappointed for weeks!

Can this player be operated vertically rather than lying flat?

Asked by: SAR1127
The LG 3D Blu-ray Disc Playback & M-DISC™ Support, Model # BP50NB40 is not a vertical player so it cannot be operated vertically. The discs will not stay in place...^Ivan

Will this model play movies from different regions? For example, I live in the U.S. and want to buy a DVD that is region 2. Will this region 2 disc movie play on this model?

Asked by: smo11
Region codes are dependent on the software used. Please check the software you plan to use this drive with regarding playing discs from multiple regions. ^Daphane

Asked by: IanS

Am I able to play original DVDs and Blu-Ray discs (not ripped and burned), on this device?  I have a TCL television with Roku Media Player, but it can’t read these disks (reads CDs just fine).  It’s in “TV Mode,” so that’s not the problame...

I'm a little confused on the USB cable, is it Mini-USB on one end and standard A-type USB on the other that plugs into the computer?

Asked by: mediaguy333
That is correct. The USB port on the LG 3D Blu-ray Disc Playback & M-DISC™ Support, Model # BP50NB40 is a mini-USB port so the cable that plugs into the drive has to have a mini USB on that end...^IFV
