My systems in Win7-64. I replaced a CD reader drive with this LG unit. The swap-out was easy and the new drive worked perfectly the first time. When I installed the software that came with the CD it included an option to update the new drive's firmware. So I selected this and proceeded.

The firmware update program attempted to install new drivers for both the LG drive and my existing DVD-R/W drive. But the driver update failed because the drivers were not signed and Win7 requires signed drivers.

After that neither of my 2 optical drives worked. I had to do a System Restore to get them back.

I subsequently found out that Win7 has a boot option that allows you to bypass the requirement for signed drivers. This is the link to the page describing the fix:

[...]

Just hit F8 when Windows is starting to get the boot option page.

By selecting the boot option I was able to successfully install all the software with no troubles. Rebooting afterwards got me back to normal Win7 with both drives working OK.

With this caveat I can recommend this drive for people wanting to create Blu-Ray disks. But it sure was a hassle finding the solution.

First, it's an LG Commercial product, so if you look on LG consumer site it doesn't exist, go look for real info here:
[...]

Note it's LightScribe capable. I had no idea when I bought it. (Pleasant Surprise).

The software is Cyberlink PowerDVD 8 (on a BlueRay disk), along with a number of other pieces of Cyberlink software (Advisor, LabelPrint, MediaShow 4, Power2Go, PowerBackup, PowerProducer and YouCam) After installation, the software does allow for playing BlueRay movies (tested with Quantum of Solace).

It also came with a SATA cable, 4 case screws and a MOLEX to SATA power converter cable, and an actual manual. For OEM it's a very complete package.

I've only had it for two days, connected to Windows 7 64 bit OS.

This is an excellent product. It installed automatically. Unfortunately, my system did not meet the requirements for the included Cyberlink Power DVD 8 software for playing Blu-Ray. This is not a problem for me as I primarily use Blu-Ray for data storage but if your computer is more than two years old, it probably WON'T play Blu-Ray entertainment discs. The processor needs to be at least 3.3GHz and the graphics card must provide hardware acceleration features. There is an automatic computer assessment tool butit's too late to run after you buy it. See if it is on the CyberLink website. You may find that you have to upgrade the processor AND the video card of your computer. It would be cheaper to buy a commercial Blu-Ray player for playback; they are in the sub-$100 price range now. This is NOT a problem with the drive; Blu-Ray entertainment discs require a lot of computational power to play and in computers, some of that computational power is borrowed from the graphics processor card.

This did exactly what I wanted it to do, play and burn blu-rays! Works well with 2yr old Dell PC. I guess when the seller says "bulk", he means he got in bulk cause I did not receive it in original box but it came with all necessary software and SATA cable as well as mounting screws and the Drive was sealed in plastic. Definitely a good product.

This unit was very easy to install. Simply plug it into an available SATA port and power (cables included), slide it in a 5 1/4" front slot and Windows 7 will install the drivers automatically. The included software will install the needed codecs for blu-ray playback and also includes PowerDVD to watch Blu-ray movies on the desktop. (Does not work with Windows Media Player). In my case, I replaced an existing DVD drive so I reused the mounting screws as this unit does not come with its own set of screws.

I've always had good luck with LG drives and so far this one is no exception. It is Lightscribe compatible, so you can burn a label on a Lightscribe DVD/CD media. I'm not aware of any Lightscribe Blu-Ray media as of yet.

Five stars for the hardware, two for the software.

This is a great Blu-ray drive. If you're techie enough (or have a friend who is) and can open up your computer, install hardware into a bay, connect a SATA data cable to the mother board and a SATA power cable to an adapter, you will love the performance and price.

The drive is fast. I've used it to make nearly 24 Gigabyte data backup Blu-ray discs at close to 8x, or 24 megabytes of data a SECOND. I used Optical Quantum 4X 25GB White Inkjet Hub Printable blank Blu-ray discs.

But in order to do anything with this drive, you need software.

The drive comes with CyberLink Blu-ray Disc Suite v8.0 (the current version at this writing is 10.0).

The useful CyberLink BD Advisor software checks your system (video, processor, RAM, etc) to see if you can play Blu-ray movies. Other provided software allows you to:
1) watch Blu-ray movies (but not the newest, like Avatar)
2) make music and MP3 CDs and DVDs
3) make data CDs and DVDs
4) make VCD, SVCD, video/photo DVD, Blu-ray VIDEO discs, archive video, and copy and backup CDs and DVDs.

Critically missing from the software suite is data backup to Blu-ray, the reason I bought this drive. Cyberlink has an upgrade path to v10.0 for $65. that will make data discs. NO THANKS.

I found a link for free Ashampoo Burning Studio software for Blu-ray data disc burning at the dottech dot org web site. If you need data burning, save yourself the money Cyberlink wants and go there.
