What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as well as other LG products I have owned A little noisy on startup, but runs just fine on tasks I have tried: writing to and reading cd, reading dvd. I have not tried writing to a dvd yet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked great for 7 months I bought this item in January 2018 and it ceased working in August of 2018. There is a 1 year warranty on the product but because I purchased the item via a vender on Amazon they will not honor the warranty. I am unclear on how that warranty is really a warranty if it is not honored.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't get it to play DVD I bought this product with the idea that I could play a DVD. Inserted a disc after installing correctly, and only the audio would play. Tried another DVD and still could not get it it to play. It's not as simple as plugging in and "deciding what to do with the disc." Have some feelers out to some friends to figure out why I cannot get it to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The size of a CD case This unit fulfills my expectations completely. Slim, having dimensions of a CD case, requires quite a small footprint. The installation could not have been simpler. Remove it from the shipping carton, plug in the USB cable, insert the installation disk and within minutes I was playing a DVD. The software provides viewing/writing capability and also contains file backup to preserve computer file. I am thrilled with this LG DVD/CD player/writer which I use with Windows 10 on my desktop computer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well for Audio CDs As title states, this portable drive works well for burning/playing audio CDs. I have no yet tried to burn DVDs. As portable drives go, it is delicate and should be handled as such, but it works well. It is attractive, however, I deducted one star because I think a matt finish would have been more appropriate for something that is handled a lot. Finger prints show all over the place, and I imagine so will scratches that might happen. Mechanically, so far, I rate this A+.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't get it too work. Minimal directions and no hints/suggestions if it doesn't work. Only big disclosures saying it doesn't work on all TVs. Well, I have a brand new smart TV. Why it wouldn't work is beyond me

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad . . . EXCEPT So far I've had a couple of issues--one particularly important for me: 1) the write speed seems slower than indicated by X__; 2) if burning a file that requires more than one blank disc to complete . . . it simply re-burns the first part over and over again, asking for an additional disc to be inserted ad infinitum!

I got a disc with the software with the device but when I attempted to download the software onto my MAC it says it is not compatible with MAC.  Is there a separate software package that I must download or something?

Asked by: ernstie
Since you have a Mac computer, you don’t need to install the disc that came with the unit. That disc is only for Windows OS. If you want to copy/ burn files from your computer to a blank disc, then you just need to drag and drop the files that you want to copy to the folder where the blank disc is located. Now, if you want to play videos or movies, you can play it on a DVD Player built-in on Mac. If you want to play audio, then it would be thru iTunes. ^AC

I am a Mac user.  I inserted the Quick SetUp CD and nothing happens.  I see lots of files in the CD called "autorun" and ending in *.exe - none of which Mac opens.  Do I need software to write in go in a CD/DVD?  If so, where can I download it from?
