    ASUS SBC-06D2X-U reviews

    SBC-06D2X-U External Slim Blu-ray Combo is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly I needed an external optical drive, so I thought this would be a good buy. It definitely is and it works perfectly. I have an iMac, so I thought I needed to go through a long setup process, but all I had to do was plug in the USB cable connecting the Asus to the iMac and open my DVD player. For some reason the directions that came with the Asus made it seem a lot more complicated than it actually was to set up. Also, when I first plugged it in, my computer had this odd window pop up asking me if I wanted to change the DVD's region. Other than those two, I'm perfectly happy with the Asus, and it works like a charm.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from requires 2 USB ports; unable to get it to work I purchased this drive from B&H for use with a MacBook Pro. The USB cable splits at the computer end and has two USB connectors about 2 apart. BOTH must be plugged in for the unit to work. As my MacBook's USB ports are on opposite sides of the computer, I first tried plugging the disk into my HooToo powered USB 3.0 hub. The drive would spin up and accept a DVD, but the Mac did not see the drive or the disk. I then purchased a USB extension cable and used it to connect the USB connectors to both of the Mac's USB ports. The results were the same as with the powered hub; the drive came to life but was not visible to the Mac. I am returning the unit and getting one that does not require two USB ports. Even if this unit had worked, it would be a pain to have both USB ports tied up every time I wanted to use the drive. It would mean not being able to use a mouse or to connect a hard disk.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Installation problem I just received my new order ASUS SBC-06D2X-U Blu-ray ROM today. I played a DVD with it on my desktop and it was fine; but failed on my laptop - device manager didn't detect the device. My desktop showed that SBC-06D2X-U came with a driver 6.1.7601.17514 dated 6/21/2006. I searched on internet and ASUS website, no other drivers were found. Tried many other ways, still had the same problem. Then I read the 28-page 35-language Quick Installation Guide. It was a quick guide for dummy, useless. Fortunately SBC-06D2X-U came with a CD (ASUS BD SUITE) which contained an application ATE (ASUS Turbo Engine) that fixed my problem. A note from CD: ATE incresases the connection performance between the system and the optical drive. It's a package, but not a driver. In order to run ATE, you must have a working DVD drive either connecting to your computer or use it to convert the CD contents to an ISO image then mount it to a virtual drive. I used the second method. SBC-06D2X-U must be connected to the computer while ATE is running. If it works, a msg will be displayed - SUCCESS:installed driver package! SBC-06D2X-U is beautiful but little too big for travel.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and easy to use Bought this after my Mac's burner bummed out. Was a much cheaper alternative to getting it fixed. Easy installation, DVD's play and burn perfectly. No complaints.
