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.

I have a new WH16NS40, and when I play Blu-Ray Movie every 10 - 12 seconds the playback will hesitate for less than a second.
Have you seen this issue?
How can I resolve this problem?
Asked by: StarCaptain
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this Optical Drive. If the drive stalls at such a repetitive interval, then there may be a need for additional system memory or video memory for additional data buffering. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional information in this matter.
