Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't recommend Recently bought, easy to set up, runs quietly, BUT nearly always refuses to eject and you have to prod the emergency port to manually eject. Disks burned by this Maplin DVD Writer won't play on our TV's DVD/Blu-ray drive. Bit slow to copy and burn disks. Twice now had to reboot my Mac to get rid "please wait" spinning wheel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty Plugged into USB it appears then disappears then reappears.... useless piece of junk Much better brand-name ones out there for the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless - zero stars!! Just bought this to do some urgent DVD burning from my Acer notebook. This has Windows 7 (Starter) and the latest ImgBurn. The driver installed OK. Then I was using brand new Verbatim -R discs to copy files to. EVERY ONE FAILED - 10 in all - with a "Power Calibration Error." Piece of junk. Avoid.

Should this work with Windows 98? and if so where do I find a driver?

Will this work on a Windows 8 laptop at all?

Asked by: SparkyMarky
The device should work with all versions of Windows. On Windows 8, 8.1 or 10 make sure you are installing with device driver signature enforcement disabled. Instructions of how to do this can be found here.. https://www.google.co.uk/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=device+driver+signature+enforcement+windows+8

Asked by: Anonymous
This will depend on the type of files that you are trying to play , they may not be compatible with this drive.
