What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works are expected, might need system twiking. After the fifth BD burning, the drive failed to complete a burn. I first attributed the failure to the disk but after the second consecutive failure and not recognizing the drive with BD disk, I knew has to be the burner. A cycle of disabling/enabling the drive didn't resolve the issue. A bit of research turned swapping SATA ports could be the fix. In my case it was so. The unit has the latest firmware. Not certain if burner or stem is the issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LG WH16NS40 won't write DL Media - Design Flaw I bought two of these. The User Manual and Spec sheet say that the drive will write to DVD+R Double Layer Media. So does the advertising. But the fact is because of a design flaw this drive will not write to DVD+R DB Media, only non-existent DVD-R DL Media. So if writing DL media is important, this drive is useless to you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Device Manager says it's good but it don't work. I got this model and it don't work so went looking to see what I could figure out. Came here to check compatibility with windows 10. On the Overview page it says yes but on the Specs page it says only compatible with XP, Vista, 7, 8 lol

How can I make this Blu-ray drive work on Windows 10? I bought it a few years ago and just installed it. I can open and close the Blu-ray. I downloaded the firmware/driver that is supposed to work with it, but Windows 10 doesn't recognize the device.

I'm getting a weird pause and dropout as the Blu-Ray shifts from chapter to chapter. Research seems to show that a firmware update is needed, but I have the latest from LG.

I have the WH16NS40 config'ed in an external drive housing as an OWC Mercury Pro Professional External USB 3.1 Gen 1 Optical drive. OWC is so hyper-MAC, cannot tell what burner software I can use for PC. I want to be able to burn all formats esp. M.

What type of m-disk will this burner burn?

Asked by: Terrybee
I quite successfully burned an M-Disc BDXL 100 Gb with no problems as well as a DVD M-Disc. So I'm assuming it will work with all M-Disc formats.
