Driver issues 8/15/2020 5:19:32 PM

Pros: Note this unit is usb 2.0.
Linux does not need a driver to make this unit work, and it is also recognized by XP. That is what I needed it for, backward compatibility.

Cons: Asus does not have drivers that work on win10. My other asus internal drive is not longer functioning either. The CD provided has silly utility software instead of a driver. Their download sight offers what is on their CD.

Overall Review: I think the unit should work with the latest OS, even if this is an older unit. I may have to replace the CD recorder in my desktop now, this should not happen.
I tried the Asus support line, they are on holiday & never returned my email after two weeks.
I’ll keep trying.

Very small & light Gets the job done. 6/4/2020 12:14:02 PM

Pros: It's small & light so it takes up very little space. It's very portable. The Nero burning software it comes with is minimal but easy to use. There was a coupon for 6 free months of Asus cloud storage which was an unexpected bonus.

Cons: Requires 2 USB connections or a power adapter that isn't included. Luckily I had 2 free USB slots. Also, it's small and light so it can easily slip off of an angled surface.

Overall Review: I would recommend this product.
I would like to see a longer USB cable.

It works great 4/29/2020 8:57:35 PM

Pros: So, I've used this for Linux and Windows. I've got a multi boot laptop and it let me use it to boot everything from live distro's to install discs.

Cons: It's a little slow compared to a Sata drive but I expect that since this is a USB external drive.

Overall Review: I recommend this product it just works!

Pros: - Plug and play into Windows 10 and it just worked
- Slim and portable

Cons: - Needs 2 USB ports

Overall Review: Great little drive. I am ripping my huge DVD collection and this drive was able to read discs that my aging internal DVD drive was throwing errors on.
