    Other drives I've seen do not say "double-layer". What does this mean and is it important to have?   (1 Answer)

      Answer

      "Double-Layer DVD±RW/CD-RW" is referring to the type of DVDs and CDs. Those are discs that provide twice the storage capacity of a standard DVD or CD recordable disc. The discs employ two recordable dye layers with each being capable of storing nearly the 4.7 GB capacity of a single layer disc, almost doubling the total disc capacity to 8.5 GB. The LG 8x Portable DVD Rewriter with M-DISC™ SuperMulti Blade Drive, Model # AP70NS50 can read such discs and the discs can only be created using DVD+R DL and Super Multi drives...^IFV

        Answer

        Yes, but you will need to download software to run it. The included software doesn't work with Win 10. I used free "Ashampoo" and it worked fine.

              Actually I was told this was a DVD/CD player that would plug into my new HP Spectre computer which has no DVD player. So, has Best Buy lied to me again regarding a product?

              I bought an LG silver DVDRW/CDRW external double layer super multi disc drive. I don't know what double layer means but it did what I wanted. If you have a desktop with a dvd drive that stopped working, I highly recommend this product. I just plugged it in with the usb wire that was included and downloaded the software. I had 2 programs that I needed to install, photo explosion and vhs to dvd. I was finally able to install them. One thing I did pick up when reading the reviews, you should plug the usb wire into one of the usb outlets directly on the computer. Hope this helps since I'm a newbie also.
