As a CD drive, it performed flawlessly when connected through the USB port on my Vista machine.
You will find the following in the box:
- the CD drive itself
- USB cable to connect to computer
- cable to connect to external power supply (not needed and external power supply is not provided)
- mini CD disk with drivers (not needed in my case)
- 3-paragraph 'manual'
- drive is very slim - 1/4"
- on my Vista laptop installation was automatic and the drive was recognized immediately
- a USB 2.0 port appears to provide all the power the drive may need
Within the context of this being a CD drive I am going to subtract one star for the 'for ASUS EEE PC' claim. This will work on an ASUS machine but it will work on ANY computer running XP or Vista so calling it 'for ASUS' is only marketing hype that may blind potential customer into assuming (see above) that they are getting a DVD drive with the purchase.
Pros: Does what it is supposed to do, I immediately loaded a couple of photo programs on my Asus notebook and also Civilization III, Conquests.
Cons: If you are a Cal resident they charge tax. No big deal.
***** 6 MONTH UPDATE ***** Playing Civ III on my ASUS Netbook almost every day since my purchase and this CdRom drive has performed flawlessly. That means the drive is in constant use and no problems.
***** 8 MONTH UPDATE ****** Just aquired two Acer Aod 250 Netbooks and loaded AVG Internet Security for 3 User/Windows 7 compatible on both of them with this Cd Rom with no problems and also loaded Avg on my Asus Netbook. One Acer has Windows 7 Starter and the other XP however neither would play Civ III after loading. Not the fault of the CD Rom. Also loaded with no problems my MP490 Canon printer software on the Asus XP Netbook and the Acer XP Netbook with this CD Rom. The only CD this CD ROM has failed to recognize and load so far is Shogun; a nine year old program that started off the Total War series.
Was surprised when I opened the box that the unit did not have the swivel feature for loading the disc in the drive as illustrated, and instead was like an automobile CD player, where the disc is just inserted. Also, paperwork with it indicated the "eject" button was just for show and did not work. To eject I would need to right click on the computer's CD drive. So, with the comments about trapped discs and discs just spinning around with no functionality I didn't know what to expect.
Bottom line, everything worked SUPER. I've already ripped a couple of dozen music CDs and loading the Works disc was a snap. For $13 or so this is a marvel!
Sorry, it does not like the DVDs >

This works for me on Windows 10. Kind of a pain that it uses multiple USB ports but well worth it at this price point.Published 3 months ago by thekcsmos
