Just what i needed!My Mac came with no CD/DVD drive, so I purchased this item. It gave me just what I needed. It was easy to install and is easy to use as well.

Not any good.It worked twice and after that it quit. Does not play any CD or DVD. I was going uninstall and reinstall to see if that would make any difference but I can't even get it uninstalled. If I can get this junk off of my computer, it is going into the garbage. I believe that is where it came from before I got it.

This DVD Writer is simple to use.For someone with low technical knowledge, the LG Portable DVD Writer was simple to setup and use. I was worried I would need help to get it going, but it wasn't at all. I am very happy it's ease of use.

I don't have the disk to install this on my laptop. Is there anyway to install without the disk?
