Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cyberlink Media Software Sucks! The software that comes with the drive is not user friendly and loads startup junk that's not needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great unit I was able to connect the drive to my notebook/laptop and burn the photos without installing the media software and it worked just fine. I wish the eject button was on the side of the unit.

Asked by: tonybalandran
Hi tonybalandran. LG is not a software manufacturer and the included OEM software with the LG Slim Portable DVD Writer DVD Disc Playback & DVD M-DISC™ Support, Model # SP80NB80 is provided by Cyberlink. The Cyberlink software that is bundled with your DVD writer on a CD/DVD is an OEM version that Cyberlink gives free to customers, but the functions of the OEM version software may not be exactly the same as the Retail or iSales versions. The OEM version may also have some customizations based on the specification of the bundled hardware or include the removal of some features due to cost consideration of the hardware manufacturer. However, CyberLink does sell a special OEM specific upgrade so users can easily change to the full (iSales) version. To upgrade your CyberLink software, you can visit the CyberLink website and locate the product name under the Products tab. You can easily find an Upgrade link on each product page, which lists the different prices for each version type...^IFV

I bought this product in America, but would like to watch DVDs from other countries with other DVD region codes. Does this player have a multi region reader? Will it play DVDs that have different region codes?

Asked by: Calprincess
Hello, you should be able too, however, when you change the region code through windows for a DVD, the player can only be changed five times. The fifth time you change the region, your DVD player is permanently locked to the last region you set it too. Please give us a call at 1-800-243-0000 if you have additional question. ^AC

How do I open the unit to get a CD in and how do I get it out after it burns? I've resorted to pulling the electric plug and putting it back in to get it to open. There is a round, circular button and a hole big enough for a paper clip end, but no others.

Asked by: DonnaSA
Hello, there is an eject button on the front of the unit, it is the raised button that also has the LED indicator light. This button is shown in the install instructions provided with the unit. ^AC
