What people are saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure if it was worth the purchase 1. It works. It worked out of the box and it works now. I pop in a CD, no problem. I pop in a DVD, no problem. Unfortunately, when I pop in a Blu-Ray (1080 or 4K) I never know if it will work or not or why. I've tried different things like upgrading the firmware, updating windows, looking through the internet for any potential LG drivers that might be needed. I've installed the Cyberlink software to see if that had something that would have helped (outside of using VLC or using Media Classic Player). If I use the BD Advisor, for some reason it doesn't recognize the player as being connected and somehow needs the internet to check if my drive is fully UHD capable (not sure why or how this roadblock even occurred). I purchased a Criterion Blu-Ray (Region 1) and when I try to play it, I keep getting errors that the player can't read it. Then when I try another Blu-Ray disc, it plays super slow. I'm using Windows 10 (latest updates), Ryzen 5 3600X, 32GB of RAM, 500GB SSD drive with ample space left, AMD 5700XT that is 1 year old at this point (with the latest AMD drivers). Most of my SATA cables are new, my motherboard is an ASRock X570 Pro4. Am I missing something? Should I be downloading or uninstalling certain codecs? Is it because I'm not using Intel?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stopped reading disks after 2 years I was happy with it until it stopped reading disks. Disk spins but get an error that I need to insert a disk.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stuck Drive Door There are times when you push the eject button and the door will not open even though it tries to do so (you can hear it). When this happens you have to firmly tap the drive door (some time several times). It is to late to return the drive to the store for a replacement. do you have an answer to this problem? Thank You.

I have a ryzen 2700x CPU and a 2080 GPU, will this set support this optical drive .

Asked by: JAB25
Just so we don't scare the non Intel CPU owners away to be clear you CAN install this drive into any computer (Windows, Linux, 2009/2010 Mac Pro Towers - remember those?) with an open 5.25" drive bay and spare SATA port. Depending on your hardware configuration you may be limited as to what specifically you can do with this drive. For sure unless you match the Cyberlink specification you will be unable to play back 4K UHD blu rays directly from this drive. Regardless of that feature this blu ray drive is smoking fast, supports up to quad layer bdxl blank discs, extremely reliable and if treated well will be in your life for a long time!

I got this on Amazon and it had no cables/cords included... just a bare drive. Will someone please tell me everything I'll need now to use it OUTSIDE of my computer? I have a protective case for it (bought separately) but nothing to connect it to my PC.

Asked by: CandaceTackett
Candace do a search for the Vantec NexStar DX external SATA > USB enclosure - a big favorite of PC users for whatever reason. If black is not your color the OWC Mercury Pro external SATA > USB enclosure is a silver/brushed aluminum color and compliments Macs extremely well.
