What makes this optical drive different?
Featuring a Zen-inspired design with a concentric-circle hairline finish and coming in at an ultra-slim 13mm form factor, this ZenDrive U7M is a stylish and portable external DVD writer. It is able to write at maximum read and write speeds of 8x for DVDs and 24x for CDs, and is capable of writing to M-DISC DVDs.

What is M-DISC?
M-DISC is an archival-quality storage solution designed for you to protect precious memories, such as family pictures and home videos, for a long time. M-DISC DVDs can preserve data for up to 1,000 years or more, which when compared to the storage lifetime of eight years for hard drives, flash drives and other writable media, is an extraordinary amount of time. This helps ensure that your lifetime memories will be safe for generations to come.

Is there software included?
Supplied with the ZenDrive U7M is Cyberlink Power2Go, a disc burning program that will help you create a disc in just three steps and offers optional encryption functionality to protect your private files. Together with support for M-DISC media, this helps to protect your information and minimises data loss. Also included with this optical drive is six months free unlimited ASUS Web Storage capacity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and compact Have bought two of these Zen Drives, great value for money. Powered through a USB port on your laptop. You do need to download DVD software to play DVD's (VLC) is free and good quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It seemed perfect for my need. Unfortunately, although there was a MAC logo on the box, the external disc drive failed to be recognised by my MAC Mini. It did not do what it said on the tin - as the saying goes.

I have an external blu ray burner I bought from you and it performed very well for over a year. I now have changed to a pc with Windows 10 and it's not detected. Perhaps it needs drivers that I don't have. Can I be right?

Asked by: gus10
This should work with Windows 10 out of the box , But yes it could be a driver issue.

It should support Linux as most drives do but I thought I'd ask just incase..

Asked by: Garth
We do not test item's on Linux and support is not listed direct from the manufacturer , from my experience it would be best to check by doing online searches to see if anybody has successfully used the item on Linux and how they did it.
