Doesn't last longbought it 3 months ago and it started burning intermittently. Tried to get it repaired under warranty but LG wouldn't stand behind their product since I didn't buy from a certain seller.

Great value and compatibility!I have always bought other brand name DVD writers. I decided to give this LG WH14NS40 a try. I've always loved LG products and this one didn't disappoint right from the start. Installation is easy, and my Windows 10.1 1870 build installed it without issue. It plays all my movies, game discs and music CD's perfectly and beautifully! I didn't even install any installation files to be able to use it. I did however take advantage of the few programs LG has to offer to expand my experience. And I can honestly say I couldn't be happier. I will be a continued LG fan forever. And now with my computer products as well. Thank you LG. You really do make life happier!

DisappointedI bought this so I could watch my bluray movies on my computer. I had it for 2 1/2 years. Got a new bluray a few days ago in the mail, watched it, went to watch another disk and it stopped working. I put in a different disk and it spits it out and tells me to put in a disk. Will not recognize any disk or play any disks.

Can this drive play "4K Ultra HD" Media?
Asked by: Dr P
It did not play 4K for me, so I guess the answer is No.

This drive claims that region B (Europe) blu ray disks won't play because they are the wrong region when I've bought and been supplied with it in the UK and the disks are region B. Why is this drive so stupid?

This came in a desktop that I recently purchased, but it does not play anything. I can find where the PC registers the DVD disk and files, but I can't play any DVDs. I also cannot play Blu Ray disks. What do I need to do so I can watch my movies?
Asked by: Jimangle
You will need to install (probably purchase) software for burning and for playing. Nero, DVDFab, and other software will write or burn. See here for a few BD playback sofware packages (http://lifehacker.com/5870977/five-best-blu-ray-playback-suites). For burning, a couple of lists can be found here (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2407553,00.asp) and here (http://blu-ray-burning-software-review.toptenreviews.com/). I use (just downloading because I had the same problem) potplayer for playing BD discs and IMGBurn, DVDFab, and Nero for burning.
