ASUS ZenDrive U9M overview

  • 1Description

The ZenDrive U9M External DVD Writer from Asus is an ultra-slim and lightweight drive that you can take with you on-the-go. It's compatible with most DVDs and CDs, offering a read and write speed of 8x and 24x respectively, and supports M-Discs for lifetime protection. For your convenience, USB Type-A and Type-C cables are included so you can use it with a variety of systems. Moreover, it's bus-powered so no external power sources are required.

Double Interface Compatibility
Included with this drive are two USB cables, one Type-A and one Type-C, so you can use it with a variety of computers.
M-Disc Support
The ASUS ZenDrive supports M-DISC, an archival-quality storage solution designed to help users protect their most precious digital memories, such as family photos and home videos. M-DISC DVDs can preserve data for 1,000 years or more, providing peace of mind that these lifetime memories will be safe for generations to come. Compared to hard drives, flash drives, and other writable media, which have the storage lifetime of around 8 years, M-DISC is designed to protect your memories from degradation and data loss for 1,000 years or more.
Included Software
The ZenDrive comes with CyberLink Power2GO 8 and PowerBackup to help you backup important data. They also offer optional encryption to keep your files secure. You can also use Nero BackItUp to wirelessly back up your Android device.

    ASUS ZenDrive U9M reviews

    ZenDrive U9M External DVD Writer (Silver) is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work with new HP Spectre x360 13t New ZenDrive with new Laptop. Drive does not work with either provided USB-C cable or USB-A Y cable to power. File Explorer does not show ZenDrive. Need paper clip to open drive and insert disc. File Explorer still does not recognize drive. B&H Service is excellent. They replaced non-functioning drive but replacement does not work either. I received an RMA from Asus for repair but Asus does not pay for postage to repair center so it may not be worth it.� According to another reviewer the drive works with a Mac. My computer is Windows 10.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless piece of garbage, worth ZERO $ Blatant lie that it works for a Mac. I bought two, neither one mounts discs thought they do spin up. Most of time the drive itself is not even visible in disk utility. I AM using the correct data and power USB connector. It's also cheaply made, fragile. Not worth the time let alone the money. There's a reason they have the rebate.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works This thing is thin and light. Was worried it would not work because I'm used to the old cd drives that are really heavy and sturdy. It works just fine. The tray does not feel very sturdy but I hope it will last a while. It was a decent price and it does work.
