Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died after 1 use First, I've had a lot of LG products, and they were all previously decent quality for a decent price. I Purchased one of these last year to install drivers onto device requiring CD. Placed unit in drawer. Today decided to take out to burn a CD, buzzing/green flashing light as others have reported. Unit apparently died just sitting in a drawer.
