Wouldn't work for me at all as it is incompatible with windows 7 and really needs to mention that. Writing this to warn people so they don't make the same mistake.

Size Name: CD/CD-RW & DVD Player Only Verified Purchase
I also bought this to use with an eee PC - a 901 running Ubuntu-eee - and it works perfectly. I've set up the 901 so VLC starts automatically when a DVD is inserted, and all the DVDs I've tried play at full-screen with no stuttering or dropped frames. It also seems happy getting power from the USB port with no need to use the separate power supply that comes with it. The build quality is reasonable although not particularly rugged.

I would recommend this device for any laptop or netbook that doesn't have a built-in CD/DVD drive. Note that it reads and writes to CD, but is read-only with DVDs.

Size Name: CD/CD-RW & DVD Player Only
If like me you have a sub notebook (Lenovo Thinkpad x61s) without a CD drive then this little external DVD/CDRW drive is perfect. I needed to install a new operating system on the laptop and this drive was was just what I needed. It is a good size, nice and slim, so not much extra weight to carry around and works just from the supplied USB cable, though there is an A/C adapter supplied as well. the drive is much more robust than I was expecting and should last well in normal use, though I don't expect it will survive being dropped from a height! its nice and quiet which is good as you don't want lots of whizzing sounds when watching DVD's in fact the only thing you will need to do to watch DVD movies is download a DVD codec if you don't have a software DVD player like WinDVD already. It arrived very quickly after ordering and its excellent especially for only £30ish!

This CD-ROM is excellent value for money, though it has some drawbacks. I found it can't read a CD unless completely level, so if used with a laptop you'll need to sit at a desk. It makes a noticeable whirring noise so if you're listening to music you'd better play it loud. Apart from that it's fine and worth the money if you can live with the constraints mentioned above.

Wife has a Dell netbook (mini 10) and needs an external CD drive. Ordered this one and it turns up really quickly.
Plugged it into the powered USB port and 20 seconds later its working fine. Operates really quickly and quietly and is very light i.e portable.
A quality item and fantastic value

I recently purchased a notebook to use in my travels as a travel journalist. After being told a load of rubbish in the high street chain stores as how to get the software on my new device it was clear I needed a portable cd rom drive. This was cheap, easy to plug in and performed the job perfecly, I was able to download word suite and norton anti virus

It does what it's supposed to do! It is slim and lightweight but feels strong in its metal case. It's good to look at and comes with USB and USB/power cables and software - although my Akoya didn't need it. It means that I can load new programs from a CD.

Size Name: CD Player Only Verified Purchase
Got this for my partner, with the intention of installing MS Office (which we had on disc) on her (disc driverless) Samsung netbook.

Her netbook would power up the drive, but wouldn't recognise that there was anything in it.

OK, so... we tried it on other lappies / desktops around the house, using an assortment of discs.

We've experience the same problems now on a Dell XPS 1330; a Mountain Lion iMac (mid-2011); a Snow Leopard MacBook Pro (2009); a Lion MacBook Pro (2012); and a Samsung... erm... something 250.

We've experienced the same problems with the (genuine / original) MS Office install discs; with an assortment of DVDs; and with a number of audio CDs, too.

We've tried searching for and DLing drivers, and - tbh - pretty much anything else under the sun that'd get Office onto my partner's netbook.

In the end, I gave up, googled how to map my Dell's drive onto our network so's her netbook could access it, and used that instead.

A total waste of about 3 hours, though it did - to be fair - kickstart me into finding a cheap (well, free) and effective solution.

Drive is being returned directly!
