Portable DVD Writer - New ExperienceI am used to have the DVD R/W device mounted in my desktop so this was a little different for me. I still have tried out all of the different apps that it came with. I tested the playback but have not tested the Media Suite applications. I have never had any problems with LG equipment so I am looking forward to getting to know this new one.

Slim, LightweightIt is slim and lightweight. I can carry it in my purse when I work on others' computers. It doesn't need an extra power cord, which makes it more portable. However, it would not install Windows 7 because a driver was missing.

Great if you need itI bought this DVD peripheral when replacing my older desktop as I still want the flexibility to use physical media. This works for me, and I have not noticed any real shortcomings due to the slower relative connectivity speed, especially given the cost of similar devices with faster connections. One thing I did notice was excessive spinning noise on the first two discs I ripped, but the drive soon quieted down and has since been unnoticeable when in use. I would definitely recommend and would buy it again.

I have desktop windows 10. DVD will not play? Computer reads name of video but wont play it. Same DVD works fine on other DVD machine I have hooked to TV. This LG SP80NB80 opens photos from CD's fine. How can I fix this problem
Asked by: Jack Sprat
Regrettably, we will need more information to determine why the LG Slim Portable DVD Writer DVD Disc Playback & DVD M-DISC™ Support, Model # SP80NB80 will only read the title but will not play the the video discs. What type of discs are you attempting to play, are these commercial DVD discs or DVD's that you have burned? A video burned to a DVD must be burned in a specific way. A WMV or AVI movie file burned to a disc will usually not play in most players unless it is converted to another format first. If you see an error from Windows Media Player that says "compatible DVD decoder not installed," this means that a plugin needed to play DVDs is not installed. If the drive is not working on your Windows 10 OS, start by opening up the start menu by left-clicking on the start button on your computer and type in Troubleshoot then left-click on Troubleshoot just above system settings. Under Get up and Running, scroll down to Find and Fix other problems > Hardware and Devices > Run the troubleshooter & wait while your computer detects problems. When you see Restart your PC to finish installing drivers and updates, click on Apply this fix, then next and follow the directions to completion then restart your computer to see if that resolves the issue. If not, go into Device Manager and go underneath the DVD/CD ROM drives and click on the drive that is listed to search for the best drivers. If the best driver is already installed, click on IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers and under that click on Standard SATA AHCI Controller and uninstall that then restart your computer to see if that resolves the issue...If that still does not work, you can access the REGEDIT by typing regedit in the start menu (registry Edit) > expand the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE .> System > CurrentControlSet > Control > Class > look for 4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318 and the n on the right side, find LowerFilters > Delete. Make sure you read the cautions on there before deleting, then restart your computer. Before you do anything with the registry edit, we highly recommend you contact the manufacturer's support for your computer for advice...^Ivan
