Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great price but horrible driver for Mac OS. Works great with my Windows notebook. Plug it in and no drivers needed. My MacBook Pro? Nope. Only works off and on due to updates to Apple OS. LG isn't keeping up apparently.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product, Sort of. I use this product with my Acer and it worked fine until I upgraded to Windows 10. Now it does not work. It is my understanding that the device is not compatible with Windows 10 so I will have to purchase a new one. Ugh!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My review Like the product, even though it would not work on the item I originally bought it for. Really small and compact.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inexpensive didn't pay off... I've had a problem with this since I bought it and it has finally just stopped working. Spend a couple dollars more for a better dvd player and save yourself the frustration.

I lost the cord for my dvd writer and was told by geek squad to get a micro usb cord. I bought the cord and now my drive will not load new dvds only ones I've previously installed. Do you sell just the cord that comes with the writer?

I bought an LG SLim Portable DVD Writer. Geek Squad installed it on my newcomputer.  A mo later computer crashed.  They recovered the data from my hard drive, but now I have no way to install the DVD Writer again.  Can you send me a link for installation?

Asked by: Loralu
There really isn't anything to install with the LG Super Multi Portable 8X DVD Rewriter with M-DISC™ Support. All the directions for how to set it up are in your owner's manual but all that requires is plugging the device into your computer with the supplied USB 2.0 cable or the cable they used to connect ti to the computer and then run the Windows Software Installation disc that was also included with the unit...^IFV

Looks like there has been a quite a few of us that need the Windows 10 driver to the LG external DVD drive SP60NB50. I'm not waiting anymore for LG to get around updating the driver. I'm moving elsewhere!

Asked by: rjtomlin25
Neil, that driver does not work on Windows 10, repeatedly linking it does not help the situation.
