It Works as a Blu-Ray Writer. I have written (burned) several CDs, CDRs, CDRWs, BDRs and BDREs - all without any errors. Being a USB portable BD drive, it is small and light weight. It does seem a bit flimsy and delicate but, with careful use, I expect that it will do the job. Windows 7 recognized the drive right away.
Now, here's the "BUT". The drive package is supplied with a software disc with Samsung's name on the label but it contains software by CyberLink. When I installed the software, I found it to be some of the most obscure and invasive programs I have ever seen. (I've been in small mini and micro computers since before there was an IBM PC or even a Radio Shack Model 1 for that matter.)
The CyberLink software is extremely obscure in it's workings. It is forever telling me that I must buy their paid-for package. The BEG SCREENS are much too much. Especially with so much trouble working with their poorly designed software. The "BEG"...
This small Samsung drive works well with both my Windows 8 notebook and my MacBook Pro, playing both DVDs and Blu-Ray discs. I like the fact that it is powered by only one USB port, not two. It also burns M-Discs, for long-term archival storage.
I got the product May 4th and it died May 30th. Still wasn't able to use Bluray on my PC, TV, iMac or Roku. Was able to download CD's onto my iMac but that's it.
