Very good little DVD writer!I've only used it 4 times now, but so far so good. I use it with a Mac and iTunes to RIP the last few CDs I own. No problems. Just plug in the USB cable and it works. I gave it only 4 stars because of the plastic casing. I'd pay more for the item if the body was made out of recycable material, like aluminum. It would feel more durable that way too.

Purchased this a few months ago with a Mac 15.5" and couldn't be happier. It's easy to us and has been very useful and reliable.

i can't get writer to play movies i also have a dvd on the computer.. it keeps asking for the drive that i have on the writer saying it can't recognize it.
Asked by: banjojane
Regrettably, we do not have enough detail to determine what the issue may be with your LG Ultra-Slim Portable DVD Burner & Drive with M-DISC™ Support, Model # GP65NW60 not being able to play movies. Are these pre-mastered movies or are these movies that you have burned yourself? What type of discs are they burned onto if you burned the movies yourself. From your description of having a dvd on the computer & you being continually asked for the drive that your computer cannot recognize, it sounds as though you have this drive connected at the same as when the internal drive on your computer is running and that may be causing some conflict. You will need to contact our Support Center at (800) 243-0000 to have them assist you troubleshooting the drive but they are going to need more detail from you to be able to assist you...^IFV
