What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works precisely as it ought Literally "right out of the box", did precisely what I purchased it to do; fills in as a bedroom TV. Haven't yet hooked up an HDMI device to it (that's next); but, am quite pleased with its picture and sound as a receiver for our satellite service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Awesome! The blacks are awesome! Remind me of CRT TVs but with great definition. Never thought HDR and Dolby Vision were so incredible. These is it, don't look anywhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slick SUPER PORTABLE DRIVE I Purchaced my drive at a local store thinking that because of the cost it might be a stop-gap at best Because I needed a drive IMMEDIATLEY. Well, I was more than Pleasantly suprised, I was Shocked. For the price I paid I expected a "bare Bones" drive to get me by. But the truth is I haven't stopped using it yet and don't know what I'd do without it. Everything from the drive to the software bundle is well engineered and easy to use. THANKS for someone FINALLY making a GREAT PORTABLE DRIVE

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this unit to use with my netbook computer. The fact that it's powered from the USB ports is very convenient and makes it more compact to carry. It has performed as expected and is super easy to use. I wish the store had black ones in stock as I'm not that fond of the white color.

2 questions: Can I use this with Windows 10? It will play a music cd, but not a purchased DVD. When I try to use it with my netbook and Windows XP, Media Player says it is missing proper codec. How can I get this to work? (It used to)

Asked by: KimG
Due to cost and licensing issues, Windows 10 does not come with the license to play commercially encrypted pre-recorded DVDs, which it had provided in earlier versions of Windows. This is not a fault with Windows 10 because Linux also does not come with the proper software, drivers, and licensing to play commercial DVDs. The cure is to either: 1. Buy a program which includes the DVD license, such as PowerDVD offered by Cyberlink.com. Priced about $59.95 on their website sale today. 2. Download the free VLC Media Player from the VideoLan.org website. With this option it may be necessary to also download and install the libdvdcss file, which contains the DVD codecs. This is free download. But, it is expected that you will give a donation to help the project continue producing and improving the software.

Will this GP08NU6R super multi drive can work with Mac OS?

I have one LG DVD driver and couldn't find any driver download link for Apple Mac PC. Where can I find the driver?
Asked by: theintha
While this drive may be compatible with a Mac, LG does not have any compatible software available. You may check your Operating System for compatible drivers. Connecting the unit with the USB cables should automatically search your computer for the drivers.
