Why would I need this external DVD drive?
The ASUS External Slim DVD Writer allows the connected computer to read and write data to digital versatile discs (DVD). These discs have the potential to hold between 4.3GB (single layer) to 7.9GB (dual layer) of data, making them great for backing up large chunks of data. Compact discs (CDs) can also be created and read using this external drive.

How do I connect the drive to my computer?
This drive uses a USB 2.0 interface that provides you with two USB connectors on a Y cable. One of these connectors is used for the transfer of data between the drive and connected computer. The second USB connector is to supply power to the DVD drive, so no additional external power supplies are needed.
This makes the drive extremely portable, and great for use with laptop or notebook computers. This is ideal if your device cannot read or write DVD or CD optical media itself.

How fast can this drive read or write discs?
The ASUS slim external DVD writer has a maximum read and write speeds of 8x for DVDs and 24x for CDs.*
