    Did not work with Windows 10

    In spite of the published specs and confirmation from a Best Buy representative in a chat session that this drive would work with Windows 10, it did not. Windows 10 recognized the drive but only loaded standard drivers. The error message from device manager follows: Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52) I consulted several forums where other people experienced the same problem and no one seemed to have a solution. ASUS told me to contact Microsoft. HA! Like that's gonna happen! I will probably keep the drive in case in need it for a Windows 7 machine.

    New build burner

    I needed a new burner with the re-build of my gaming computer because my new Motherboard does not have an old IDE interface, only SATA connections. My old burner, while still working, has an IDE interface. My only other option was to purchase a PC card with an IDE adapter on it to connect my old burner to the new motherboard. Not only is this a pricey get around way to use the old burner, it takes up a PC slot that you may not want to use. Also, the data transfer rate is much slower using this back door type connection. For the price, this was a much better solution. I have a new burner to run my re-built computer with fast data transfer with ease of installation. Definitely worth every penny, especially considering what I spent on all the new components. Great burner for the price.

    For Upgrade to Older PC

    After reading reviews at several sources, bought this to replace a defective OEM ODD in an older (vintage 2004-2005) HP PC recently upgraded with a SSD and Windows 7. Since this is a SATA drive for an IDE motherboard, I also bought a cheapie SATA-to-PATA (IDE) converter from a seller in China. Physically it all just barely fits in my SFF PC, but seems to work well. The ODD was thoroughly tested using a 3rd party ODD software test suite, and all tests passed. Hopefully this PC is now usable for a few more years. On the down side, ASUS offers very limited support on their website (no firmware upgrades, no drivers, no detailed user or technical documentation).

    I build pc's as a hobby and needed to pickup up a drive at my local bestbuy but their prices were better online so I chose in store pickup and to my surprise it arrived in two days! How's that for quick delivery! On to the review this drive does exactly as described and I have been a long time purchaser of asus products. This unit comes in black trim along with screws. Supported by most burning software it will not disappoint you.

    Love the Asus DVD Burner

    This drive is incredibly functional , versatile, and best of all cost efficient. It burns DVDs and CDs with ease, comes with NERO burning Suite, and is whisper quiet, I forgot I was burning media it's so quiet. Easy to install, just plug in the SATA from the back of the drive into the motherboard of the unit and you're done! No BIOS setup, nothing extra to do, Windows recognizes immediately. =)

    Fairly easy to install. I thought this was an IDE interface because I mistakenly believed my motherboard had only IDE connectors but I'm glad I was wrong. This drive has a SATA interface which matches the drive that came with my computer. I've used it a few times. It's fast and it's quiet and has its own version of BURN-Proof (can't remember the name). A really good DVD burner and I got it at a bargain price.

    Hadn't bought a DVD RW or CD RW in a while, was happy to see the prices available through Best Buy and made my decision to purchase easy. The online chat (twice) gave me two answers to cables either being included or not. No cables with this drive but they are easy to find and not very expensive.

    The original CD/DVD drive in my desktop was starting to refuse to read read/write CDs so I decided to replace it with something new and faster. This unit slipped right in place, configured in like a dream, and works quietly and flawlessly. I'm pleased.

    As my computer system already had an ASUS mainboard, I was looking for other components from ASUS, and found this DVD / Optical drive. IMO: ASUS is one of the best component suppliers in the computer industry.

    My old DVD drive wasn't reading or burning discs any more and after looking to see what was available I purchased this drive. My desktop computer is also an Asus and I thought it would be a good match. So far it has worked flawlessly.

    I just had the help in building my first rig and only went with the finest. While I could have went with something much cheaper I figured if I was going to go all out might as well do it correctly and I’m really happy with the outcome!

    Works like a charm. No problems so far. I built an ASUS system and added this to it. I would recommend this and I bought one for my other build as well.

    I bought this extra burner for my computer, because i always like to have two of them running. 1 because i can loop stuff from one burner to the next and if i'm backing up stuff to disks i can rotate them so i wear them out evenly.

    I bought two of these to replace the ones I had in a older computer. I t was very easy to install and work great. I would recommend this drive as a great replacement or for a new build.

    This is my first time building a PC, so I chose the ASUS DVD drive to go with the rest of my build. The install was simple and the DVD drive works great!
