Plug and Play. Full compatible with USB 3.0 / USB 2.0I use an Asus Chromebook as my computer. Sadly, The majority of ChromeOS devices do NOT come with a CD/DVD drive, so I was very excited to get this drive. I was looking forward to watching some DVDs and accessing old burnt CDs.
Compatible with WindowsXP/windows2003/Windows8/ windows10 Vista/7, Linux, Mac10 OS, OS X Yosemite, 2015 27" retina iMac, Macbook Pro with OS 10.10.5, macbook air version 10.9.5, imac with el capitan - os x 10.11 and all PC
Power by USB, no need any other power source, no need to install any driver program. Powered by single USB port, just connect it to any PC or MAC with the USB connector, then it will read the disc automatically.
With Slim, Light-weight and Shockproof Design, you can put it in the travelling bag or on your desk This superdrive is for ultrabook, netbook or PC, you can playback CD and DVD, and record CD( ONLY BURN CD)which will give you perfect effect when you are watching DVD videos, installing software, or create backup discs, etc.
This wasn't to be, though.
^^What I received^^
After finding a tutorial video on YouTube and downloading/installing the appropriate app to read video files, I connected the drive to my Chromebook and inserted a DVD... the drive acted like it was going to read the DVD, so I could open the 'chapters' individually, but nothing happened. The drive was not even found in my file system, so I couldn't even explore the disc.
I tried BOTH USB ports on this Chromebook, thinking maybe it needed to be connected to the USB 3.0 port (and I am unsure which side the 3.0 port is on) and neither side would read the disc. I know the USB ports work, since I have an external wireless mouse and I have accessed my external drive through these same ports.
I did not feel like dragging out my Ubuntu desktop to test the drive on it, and all other computers in the house have a CD/DVD drive already installed.
As far as disabled folks go, there should be NO issue using this... if it works on your system. Just plug it in and hit the open button. As long as you can plug in an USB wire to the port, you'll be fine.
This is available from Amazon for $29.99.
Complete waste of time, energy (and money) if your system isn't compatible.
WOULD RECOMMEND: No
