Just an honest cat from
Burning discs are brutally slowI purchased this external drive a few days ago and granted the price tag was pretty cheap the drive itself is extremely cheaply made. Burning 1 disc takes close to 8 minutes which is insanely slow compared to my old desktop that was 6 years old with an internal optical drive. This will eventually be a new coaster for my beers after a long days work.

Just What I NeededSince my laptop didn't come with a CD drive, this unit is ideal for my needs. I've wanted to download my music CD's onto a MP3 player and this unit has worked perfectly. The only problem I've encounter with it, it sometimes takes me pushing the open/close button a couple of times before it will open.

Hello, I bought my slim portable dvd writer last spring for school. I have since then watched alot of DVDs on it. But now all of a sudden I can not get anything to play on it. I am computer stupid so I do not know why this is happening.

How can I set it up on a Chromebook 3
Asked by: Dustin34
The Slim Portable DVD Writer DVD Disc Playback & DVD M-DISC™ Support, Model # SP80NB80 connects via USB. YOu will need to review the owner's manual for your Chromebook 3 to see if it will work with external DVD optical drives and how it connects. Even if you can connect the drive to your Chromebook, it’ll read the contents with no problem at all. However, there are some major limitations to using a Chromebook with an external DVD or CD drive. Chrome OS can read files on these disks if they are supported file formats. This means you can easily open images or audio files in ChromeOS from files on a CD or DVD. However, there are some limitations. Chromebooks do not have the necessary codecs to plays DVD files. You can connect a CD or DVD player on a Chromebook and use it read data files if you have a disk written in data format above. You cannot play an audio CD or a movie on a DVD or Blu-ray or write anything to a CD, DVD or Blu-ray disk. Chrome OS does not support optical disks to let you play music or movies. The primary reason for this is that Chrome OS doesn’t come with codecs. Codecs are necessary to compress and decompress large files like DVD videos...^IFV

SP80NB80 I bought this at Best Buy with a HP Omen. I ran the included CD, and can play music CD's but not DVD's . Why not ? Does the CyberLink Media Suite contain any DVD player ? If so I can't seen to access it . Or do I need something else
