  • Play's DVD's!

    My desktop has a vertical drive and it's hard to insert a DVD so I bought this to use it lay's flat on my desk and it's horizontal, to my surprise it play's DVD's better than the drive in my computer. This is like a Lazy Susan for my DVD's and I am so happy with it. It's does ask to set the region when I first played a DVD so it might be an older model. It appears to be backward compatible with USB 3.0 it is a USB 2.0 drive and it works fine plugged in to a USB 3.0 no problem. This is not a blue Ray player. The quality is very good. I know there's a lower price elsewhere but I am on a budget so I used the flex-pay.

  • CD/DVR revfiew

    I have to be honest, it may just be me but I can't get it to work. It showed the icon once but it wouldn't let me get to the software to install it. Since that I plug it in and don't get the icon. I have written to the company but as of now I haven't heard from them. I has just been a few days. I ma very disappointed but I believe Verbatim is a great brand as I have used their hard drives for years so I have hope for it.. I hope they will contact me and tell me if it is just something I'm not doing right. Ih ave had external cd/dvd reader/writers before with no problems and use 3 external drives so I am used to using external devices.
