Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this DVD Re-writer to replace an aging OptiArc drive in my Dell Inspiron 531. Always had an inherent problem with my drive namely that unless the media was brand new, scratch and fingerprint free, it would refuse to read/write to it. No such problems with this drive. Bought this at the price when on promotion. Easy to install, fast, quite and so far trouble free. Would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed to replace my old optical drive in a Gateway 915 2.8 GHz duel core desk top pc. This Samsung optical drive is good quality and works fine with no problems, and at promotion price a real bargain. If your upgrading an older machine like i was you need to be aware of the depth of the new drive and shorter bezel, in my upgrade i had to modify my old bezel to fit the drives face, only superficial and not to the drive itself, conclusion looks as it did before as original with the gateway bezel. So all turned out fine, if your upgrading an older machine be aware of depth of old and new drives, newer machines will be fine as the drive depth is as per this drive, the finish and look is as important as its performance, no one wants a mismatch final look. Quality ace.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works fine, but would be useful to know that it doesn't come with a power cable, fortunately had one spare, but not everyone will. moderator note: A PC's own power supply has SATA power connections on it. A SATA drive would have no need to include a cable which should be built into the system. If a system lacks a specific power connection this is a limitation of the customers power supply itself and not the drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power supply For answers to the power supply cable missing. This dvd writer is a sata based bit of kit a bit like a sata hard drive it one sata data cable which is included in the box the data sata cable connects to the motherboard where there is a sata connector socket , the power is supplied via the psu which plugs into the larger port at the back of the dvd writer.

will this writer work on my mac computer

Asked by: lawrence
It's difficult to say as you have provided no details of the computer you own. This is a standard size 5.25" DVD unit for use in just about any full size PC desktop/tower system. It connects via an industry standard SATA interface cable and is powered by an industry standard SATA power cable. If the device you wish to use it in complies with all of those parameters then it should work fine.

i don"t know much about dvd writers but is this one able to play games that are new like lets say a disk version fallout 4 ?

Asked by: jack o
The DVD writer has no bearing whatsoever on if a game can be played. This would be determined by the specifications of the PC that the DVD writer is installed in.

is this compatible with the Swann dvr cctv system?

Asked by: leeb
This is difficult to answer without knowing just exactly which one of the hundreds of Swann DVR systems you intend to use it with, I've never seen a Swann DVR with an internal CD/DVD burner built in. Perhaps if you can provide a little more data we can better advise as to suitability.
