question

Will this work with asus chromebook??
Asked by: Anonymous
I also have an ASUS Zenbook and the external drive works fine with it. I use an external port (Xcellon) for the several usb devices that I connect to my laptop, and the optical drive works fine through that, too. As another respondent said, the SDRW-08D2S requires two usb ports, but as in my case an external multi-port usb hub can satisfy that requirement.

question

I lost the cable. Any idea how to work around that? I'm not finding any cables that seem to work apart from the cable in the box.
Asked by: Anonymous
You need a new cable with two USB 2.0 connectors on the computer end. Many power supplies have sufficient power with just one of these plugs connected. On the other end a USB 2.0 MINI-B 5 pin is required for connection to the drive..

question

Multisession burning how?
Asked by: Anonymous
Multi session burning can be done on any drive. It is software dependent. For example with Power2Go (http://bhpho.to/1Qa4YoW) you can uncheck the Close Disk box on the burner tab until you are done adding data to the disk.
