I am also trying to get one of these drives working.  One "quirk" about this drive is that it actually uses two USB ports and a rechargeable battery when it is not connected to the AC adapter.  Why?  Because it draws a lot of current - each USB port on a laptop can supply a limited amount of current.  Using two USB ports allows the drive to draw the amount of current it needs.  So I would suggest using two USB cables.  Weird huh?
You might be able to get away with using just one USB cable if you have the AC adapter connected.

When connected to the computer, make sure the drivers have been installed. Usually, this will occur soon as the unit is plugged in. If you are using USB to do this, and you plug it in to one port, and nothing happens, or the unit is unrepsonsive; try using a different USB port, or try using a different applicable cord, compatible with both the unit, and the computer. If this doesn't work, depending on how long ago you purchased the unit (brand new?) then I suggest taking it back to the place of purchase and seeing if you can either trade it, or find out if someone can further instruct you of it's installation process.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

My computer don't have place for cd


If you need to install software that is on a CD, obtain an external USB-based CD drive to accomplish the task. Another alternative is to, if it is available online, download the software directly to your computer and then install it.

If you are concerned with writing to a CD, again you can do so with an external USB drive that is writable.

Hope that's helpful.

How can I put microsoft office ultimate 2007 on a notebook computer with no drive?


These are possible solutions:
1. connect an external/portable dvd drive to the usb port and you can run the installation cd from that drive.
2. copy the installation cd to your usb flash drive and install it from your usb flash drive.
3. connect your notebook to another pc within a network and share the dvd drive of that pc and run the installation cd from there.

I have a HP External USB CD/DVD R/RW drive. Stopped working.


First, try a new USB cable. Two, try a different USB port (if using a hub, directly connect to the computer). Three, check if there are any updated drivers or firmware for the drive.

(also make sure that the external drive is self-powered that the cord is undamaged and the power isn't surging or going into a brown-out. If it is one of the new bus-powered DVD drives, make sure that the computer has a good power source (not on battery for a laptop).)

Usb dvd writer can install xp?


Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.

How do i increase my dvd rw drive speed


Not all "blank" disks are alike.
Some support only '4X' or '8X' writing-speed.
So, buy blank disks that support '48X' writing-speed.

Not all DVD-writers are alike.
Some support only '4X' or '8X' writing-speed.
Upgrade to a DVD-writer that supports '16X' or '32X' writing-speed.

Not all USB ports are alike.
USB 1.1 ports support 11Mbits/second,
while USB 2.0 ports are about 10 times as fast.
Check that your USB device is connected to a USB 2.0 port, not a USB 1.1 port.

I just got a usb 2.0 external cd dvd rw burner drive for acer aspire one don't know how to connect has no instructions. Is this just a burner for cd dvd's or can I watch my dvd's with it?


If it's a DVD/CDRW It can play DVD's but not burn them. It can burn CD-R and CD-RW. It should just plug into your USB port. Make sure you have the enhanced USB 2.0 drivers for your operating system. Also you will need power for the external box the drive is mounted in. My external box needs 115 volt power. This hooks to an AC adapter, and then to the external box. You will also need Power DVD or some othe player. Windows media player will play DVD's with out some third party software.

Will CD-RW drive play video or do I need CD-Rom? (Gulp) Cost ?


MAIN QUESTION.
NO sorry to tell you you need at least a dvd drive to play dvd's DVD - R/RW to burn onto a DVD disc but you are lucky, external DVD drives are relatively cheap now days, just look around online or at walmart my estimate is that you wont pay more than 200 for a dvd-rw drive (external) as far as the value of the computer you are getting i would say currently $200 to a max of $400 value if you were going to sell it and thats asking high. if you didnt pay more tha that then you are ok IF you did i would be asking for your money back as you can go to walmart and get 3 times the computer for 300 bucks. if you need to know more just shoot me an e-mail at tonyw514@yahoo.com just let me know in the subject that your real.

External USB DVD-RW


Hi Nick,
this may be a driver conflict issue, either with your factory fitted drive.
try going into system/device manager and see if its in there, click remove or uninstall, reboot and plug the drive in again, go through the add new hardware wizard if need be.
the other suggestion, is to remove all USB devices from The device manager, reboot and the system will re-install the USB port drivers.
