              Comments about Transcend Portable DVD Writer (Black):

              Just what I needed, something plug&Play to load Windows7 onto a brand new hard drive when my mini-pc crashed and required a reinstall. Just connected it to the laptop, booted to this external CD drive with no problem, and it has been working smoothly for cd/read&write, and dvd play. Nice size for my 11 inch pc which has no internal optical drive.

                MY CD DRIVE CRASHED AND IT WAS REPLACE BY TOSHIBA AND CRASHED AGAIN. THE TRANSCEND PORTABLE DVD WRITER I PURCHASED WORKS GREAT AND INSTALLED EASILY ON WINDOWS 7 PLATFORM. GREAT PRODUCT.

                    I bought this so I could download software from DVD's to my netbook. I have Windows 7 on my netbook and as soon as I plugged in the drive, it automatically downloaded the drivers. I was a bit
                    worried that I would need both USB connections but the drive worked great with just one. It also plays pre-recorded DVDs!
