What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with LG products This is LG CP40NG10 eternal blu ray drive. I purchased this to play blu ray discs on my computer. I have it correctly installed, my computer has more than the minimum requirements but never passes the pass fail tests for the graphics card. I've tried updates (graphics card is up to date), uninstall and reinstall, new cables, even other computers and it doesn't work. I can play CD's and DVD's but then I already had a DVD player writer in my computer so that isn't much help. I purchased this product after trying to use an internal LG blu ray that wouldn't run either. I don't know if it's the software(yes that was updated too) or the actual hardware or an incorrect minimum requirements list but all of it came from LG with this player so for me it's a part of the purchase I made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my better purchases !! I needed a Blu-ray player to copy my DVD's & Blu-ray's to my media server. While doing research, I came across this external Blu-Ray player. The portability is useful to me (I can use it with my laptop or home PC), and it's super quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does everything I wanted it to do. Needed to install old programs onto my new slim laptop. Installation went without a problem. Played a Blu-ray movie with no problems. Have not tried to burn any disc yet. It is compact and easy to carry in computer bag. No problems so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work, doesn't play Blu-ray A terrible, overpriced product. It will not play some discs I have played on numerous other devices. When it does play a movie, there often are so many annoying stutters and pauses that I have to shut it off. And it absolutely will not play Blu-ray discs, despite the claims. Considering that this is one of the main reasons I bought it, that’s a major drawback. I tried patching the software that came with it many times, but that didn’t work. The people at Cyberlink, which makes the software, assure me it’s not a software problem, that the drive is faulty. LG is responsible for providing the software, anyway, so either their version of the software is flawed, or the drive itself is. This is on a brand-new, fully updated laptop with all the current drivers. Unfortunately I lost the receipt and can’t return it. So I’m stuck with this useless product. Don’t make the same mistake.

Hi! I was wondering if this can play blu ray and DVD from any region or is it region locked?

Asked by: Kuraisen
The LG Super Multi Blue Portable with 3D Blu-ray Disc Playback & M-DISC™ Support, Model # CP40NG10 is designed to play only discs authorized by the content provider for the specific geographical region it is sold in and for the U.S., that is region A/1. for Blu-ray DVDs and DVDs. This is intended to permit content providers (motion picture studios, television production company etc.) to do effective price differentiation between regions. According to the Blu-ray Disc Association, all Blu-ray Disc players and Blu-ray Disc-equipped computer systems are required to enforce regional coding. However, content providers need not use region playback codes and there is a large percentage of Blu-ray Discs from the major studios that are region-code-free and can, therefore, be played on any Blu-ray Disc player, in any region. Movie distributors have different region coding policies. Among major U.S. studios, Walt Disney Pictures, Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios, and Sony Pictures have released most of their titles region-free. Unlike DVD region codes, Blu-ray region codes are verified only by the player software, not by the optical drive's firmware. The latest type of Blu-Ray disc, suitable for UltraHD content, are region-free... ^IFV
