I have the slim portable DVD writer and I am burning audio CD's with it.  Though the CDR's have 700 MB's of space, the writer will only let me burn a few songs , not anything close to 700 MB's.  It also is sketchy, sometimes it burns the whole  play list.

will this device allow someone ability to transfer my personal info. while connected to my tablet

Asked by: need2kno
Please pardon us, but we are not clear on your inquiry about the LG Ultra Slim Portable DVD Writer with M-DISC™ Support, Model # GP55EX70 and will need some clarification. If it's an Android tablet, it will only support FAT File Systems and the DVD drive has a different file system. After Android KitKat, Google removed pendrive/flash drive driver from the OS kernel, so no pendrives or DVDs are supported officially...^IFV

Is there anyway to fix my portable DVD writer if it is blinking green while the DVD is first inserted then stops blinking soon after? I can't figure out what's wrong with it. It sounds like it's spinning the DVD but nothing pops up on my computer.

Asked by: kathryn5
That doesn't sound right. Please give us a call at 1-800-793-8896 when you are with the unit so we can troubleshoot.

Good morning, will this work with my MAC as a external CD/DVD drive to listen to my cd or watch dvd movies?

Asked by: MizCarmel
Hi MizCarmel. Regrettably, we don't know what connectivity is on your MAC nor what Operating System it is running to determine if this LG Ultra Slim Portable DVD Writer with M-DISC™ Support, Model # GP55EX70 will work with it. This drive supports the Mac OS X (10.7.5) Operating System and connects via USB. Your USB port must be able to deliver power to the drive...^IFV
