4.0 out of 5 stars ASUS External Disc Burner, July 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS External Slim 8X DVD-RW Stylish Cut Design Optical Drive SDRW-08D2S-U/BLK/G/AS (Personal Computers)
My internal IDE CD/DVD burner finally died, and I couldn't really find a suitable replacement... IDE internal burners are kinda expensive and not readily found. I decided to take a chance on an external burner. I chose this one because it had pretty good reviews, and I bought from Amazon specifically because they will stand by the product if for some reason it doesn't work. To my amazement, the unit worked perfect on the first try. I plugged it into my USB port and was off and running. I've burned maybe 30 discs, both CD audio and DVD movie and DVD-Rom and so far no problems at all. The only thing I might mention is that when I place a blank disc into the drawer and close it, there is a slight 'rumble' as it prepares the disc (for writing?). This may be completely normal. As I said, after a month, it is still working perfectly. My cost was aprx $30.00 .

When you hear that rumble, it's probably on its way to burning out. I probably ripped about 200 CDs to my computer hard drive, and the dang thing died on me and won't do anything now :-/
