I'm not sure why so many people are rating this low. Probably because the most likely people to rate a product are those that are dissatisfied. Being in the tech field I know just a little about electronics. I have a MacBook Pro that doesn't have a DVD drive so I needed an external drive and this one showed Mac compatible and it was very very reasonably priced so I gave it a try. The drive hooked up and worked right out of the box, ready to use. I have used it with single layer and double layer DVD's and it burns both just fine. It definitely isn't the fastest drive out there but again for the price you get what you pay for, if you wanted a faster drive you need to pay for it. I've had the drive about 6 months and no issues whatsoever. I've burned data, iso images and movies all with no issue. I gave it 3 stars under features just because of the speed. It's small and easy to transport and definitely doesn't deserve the low ratings. If you have a Mac this is a go to burner for a decent price.

I bought this for the MDISK capability. The drive writes DVDR media with no problem, it looks nice, and it is compact. However, I've tried 30+ different commercial DVD movies and I get a read error message with every single one of them. The same DVD movies play perfectly and read correctly with my other 3 external DVD drives. Only the LG is completely defective in being able to read DVD movie disks. I hope they release some firmware that can address this problem, but so far I've been forced to keep a second NON-LG external drive attached for reading disks and only use the LG for writing. The drive is defective in design or manufacture, I don't know which.

Comments about LG Black Super-Multi Portable DVD Rewriter With M-DISC:
Well the title explains everything. Spent a few hours trying to figure it out and no luck. Will be returning it hoping the computer store will take it back as I bought it to play DVD's.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Amazing Device for the Price
from Hayward, CA, United States
This drive is powerful, fast and rugged! It's outlasted so called bargain deals that ended up corrupting Audio/Video libraries. TWICE! But every time I switched back to GP60NB50 without any problems.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Doesn't play DVDs
from Leesburg, VA, United States
Kind of unbelievable...this thing will play any CD I try, but I've yet to find a DVD that it can play. It winds up, makes quite a bit of noise, then dies. It never seems to spin fast enough to get the DVD playing. So...a DVD player that doesn't play DVDs. Great job, LG!

This product was purchased to put photos and home videos on DVDs for family members. It's totally useless. the only thing going for it is it looks nice.
Lasted only 1 month
from Geelong, Victoria, Australia
Lasted only 1 month before dying, this is the worst writer I have ever owned.
from Charlottesville, VA, United States
When I plug it in the DVD spins for 30 secs to 1 minute but it won't load or burn the DVDs. I feel like some work and some don't. If you order, it's the luck of the draw.
NOT WORKING ON WINDOWS 10
not working on windows 10 which has been release more than 1year ago
Plug and play
from Los Angeles, CA, USA
As many of the other reviewers of this product mention, I too went to search for a driver. After wasting time doing that, I realized that when I restarted my computer, it just magically recognized the device and when I inserted a DVD, or CD, I was able to burn them to my computer. It seems to work on my Windows 7 and Mac operating systems just fine. I have a MacBook Pro without a built-in CD/DVD drive, so this works nicely. I am running OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 (mac) and Windows 7 in Parallels and have been able to burn discs nicely. I would advise forgetting about the usual driver headache that we come to expect when we get new devices and if your computer does not recognize/"see" the device in Finder (mac) or Explorer (windows) when you first plug it in, try a restart and try to plug it in and start playing with it! Sometimes we like to complicate things that do not ask to be complicated...at least that was my experience.
