4 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

Pros: works well on *ONE* USB port of my PC. I was worried it'd require two, cauz then I can't use it on my Macbook Air without an extension cable. Haven't had any issues with reading discs so far.

Cons: writing to discs failed a few times, but when I restarted the write operation it worked fine. not sure what it was, may have been a user error on my part.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as Needed

Pros: Fast and quiet reader for music and bootable discs.
Small, light, only needs one USB cable.
Even matches the new laptop I got.

Cons: Expensive when not on sale.
Cable is a bit shorter than desired.

Other Thoughts: Overall a good product, does what it needs to. Luckily I got it on sale as well so it was a better deal.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: Doesn't require a second usb port for power or an external ac adapter.

Cons: None as of yet

Other Thoughts: Great little portable dvd burner. Allowed me to add a second hard drive to my laptop, but still keep cd/dvd reading and burning capabilities anywhere I am at, thanks to not needing external power like my old HP portable burner did.

2 out of 5 eggsSAMSUNG DVD Model SE-218CB/RSBS

Pros: Very small and light and power off of USB - so only 1 cord. Had no problems with CDs.

Cons: Crashes-freezes my computer when I try to burn DVDs. Trying new disks but I'm not holding my breath. All of the improper shutdowns are destroying my computer.

Other Thoughts: Maybe burning DVDs needs more juice?

1 out of 5 eggsNOT Android Compatible

Pros: Works with Windows

Cons: You would think Samsung who designed this drive and advertises it as Android Compatible, would make it work with their own Android Devices.

Complete Fail, this device will not work with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" or the Samsung Galaxy SII. I get a "damaged usb storage".

I have external power added and I also put the drive in AV mode which is not disclosed anywhere.


AV Mode

-Plug your dvd writer SE-218 into your tablet via usb.
-Press the eject button to eject the tray.
-While the tray is open, press and hold the eject button until the green light on the tray stays lit. Then release. This brings your dvd drive into av mode.
-Close the tray.
-Now, eject and open the tray and put in a dvd.
-Your tablet will now recognize your dvd as a usb device.
