It works like a charm, however.
Classic Movie Fan
Has two USB cables, but it seems to work okay if you only plug one of them in.

Light, no power supply needed, works with every PC and Mac we have. Does use two USB ports but that has not caused an issue.

Good value. Works perfectly. Used with a Zotax box to install Win7 without any issues. Only dislike is that it needs 2x USB2 ports.

August 27, 2014 changes:

I lowered this drive to 4 stars. I have 2 of these. One of them lasted 31 days -- Amazon let me return it, even though it was one day over the 30-day limit. It simply stopped reading discs. I checked everything, cables, install, ports, etc. (and since I have two of these, it was easy to check what worked) and it was simply "dead." For the price, I still think it is a good product. The second drive is still working okay. Next time, I will add a square trade or other warranty. The manufacturer's warranty is 2 years, but I don't know how reliable it is.

Original Review: (Four Stars)

See below for why I bought this drive in the first place. **
Let me start by saying that this drive requires 2 USB connections. It has a split cable -- presumably it uses one for power and the other for communication. (They don't really tell you this or show you in any of the photos.) It isn't a problem for me, because it also works well with a USB extension device -- a powered one. I haven't tried it with a passive USB extender. Many devices won't work with them.

This drive does everything it says it can do. It is very thin. I am using it on a desktop, but it would be great to carry around for a laptop. If it is connected directly to your USB port it is very fast. As it happens, I am using it on an older system. I am able to use it with a powered USB extender, and it works great -- except it burns discs a little bit slower. It works like a charm, however.

I ended up buying 2 of these drives -- the first one worked so well and the price was so good I figured, why not?

Works perfectly on Windows 8.1. Has two USB cables, but it seems to work okay if you only plug one of them in. Pretty quiet and looks nice. What more is there to say?

For the price this is a great drive. I have used it with both PC and Mac with no issues. However the supplied software only runs on pc. The included software is not needed to use the drive.

Works perfectly well with my new Hp Evny x360 model! It plays my CD perfectly (yet on itunes it doesn't show the song names) and was able to install an anti-virus CD program. After purchasing my laptop and realizing it didn't have a CD/DVD rom, i was overwhelmed on stress since I just couldn't exchange it for anotheer, but purchasing this External drive have helped a lot, and it came pretty fast! Thank you!

Great purchase so far. Open the box and plug it in. Comes with 2 USB plugs, but I only use one and it works fine. No problems - very easy to use.
