Superior data protection with M-DISC Support

The M-DISC uses a patent rock-like recording surface instead of organic dye to etch your data onto a disc. The M-DISC has been tested and proven to outlast standard DVDs currently on the market.

Slot Load in Style

The slot drives load discs with a simple glide that is fast and smooth compared to drives with a disc tray. By removing the complexities of the disc tray we have simplified the drive to operate in tight spaces and run silently without needing to open or close. Give your ultrabook a companion that looks and works great.

TV Connectivity

Enjoy your media on your TVs, digital photo frames and PCs by simply connecting your drive with USB cable.

8x Writing Speed

Burn more discs in less time with 8x DVD-Max writing speed.

Mini USB

Provides easy connection with Mini USB cable. No additional power source needed.

Style Evolution from Slimmer to Slimmest

The overall slim design of only 0.55 inches high optimizes space for the slim OPU installation. It allows for a sleek companion to thin Ultrabooks and enhanced portability.

Silent Play

The Silent Play technology helps reduce noise during playback by recognizing different multimedia and automatically adjusting the playback speed according to its criteria for optimal performance.

Super Multi Compatibility

LG Super Multi Compatibility optical drives can read and write different types of disc formats in one convenient package.
This gives you the option to choose the media best suited for each task

Win 10 & MAC OS Compatible

Enjoy complete freedom in use with compatible support for Windows 10 and MAC OS.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Not compatible with Windows 10

Submitted by Doc2000 - 10/9/2017

Eventhough the manufacturer says it is compatible with Windows 10 it is not. You will get an Error Code 39 and neither LG or Microsoft can fix it.

iTunes doesnt get along well with this drive

Submitted by Cantgetsupport - 8/26/2017

The computer will just stop seeing the drive in the middle of a read/write. My wife likes to listen to audio books while driving. Audible only lets you burn books to disk through iTunes which is a garbage piece of software in and of itself. About a fourth of the time my Windows 10 based computers will stop recognizing this drive and you have to shutdown the computer and start the burn all over again from the beginning. Audible will tell you with some basic math you can restart the burn after the last clean disk but this has never worked for me. iTunes will skip all over the place when you try to burn the book starting where you left off. This is my second external LG drive the other one is a different model and Ive had the same problem with both drives using different computers all running Windows 10. Apple LG Audible and the computer manufacturers all blame each other for the problem.

Was told it was IOS compatible. Customer service was horrible~ phoned with downloadable link failed. Support barely spoke english and after nearly 90mins of poor attempts to solve problem 35mins of that time was being placed on hold I asked for a supervisor. Supervisor was not available. Support tech offered me a refurbished product in exchange for my newly purchased gear Ummmm No thanks Good riddance to this product. Returning it to Best Buy today

Silent and Elegant...

Submitted by Aiml3ssCalam1ty - 12/25/2016

I bought this external drive about a year ago and by far the best feature about this drive is its silence. Loading and ejecting discs is noisy although it only lasts for one and a half seconds. However when its playing back or burning a disc it is a very nice to be able to do so without the need for a headset. Ive used other ODDs over the years internal and external and by far this one has brought me the best enjoyment. Its also very sleek and modern in its appearance and the slot-load design is a plus. Im actually looking online for a bluray version hence the late review but sadly I havent found that theyve made one. MAKE IT NAOW -But seriously fantastic drive very quiet operation great design and slot-load I couldnt ask for more in a DVD drive.

Worst External DVD Drive

Submitted by Unhappy207 - 6/30/2016

I purchased this about a year ago and at first it worked great. Then I started watching DVDs from my local library or renting them from a place like Redbox. Many times the player would just tell me that the disc was not supported which was extremely annoying since I had an older computer that was able to play it with with very few problems. Then last night I accidentally dropped the player and it did not work at all. I had a disc inside and was completely unable to eject it. When I went online there was no user manual to help me trouble shoot. Very unhappy with this external DVD player/writer and will not be buying another
