Which Portable DVD Drive? - September 21, 2014, 12:03 PM

Hey there techies so I need a portable external DVD drive. Probably won't use it a lot. Just need something so I can write and load a new OS from a flash drive onto a laptop that doesn't have a DVD drive. Will probably use it to rip some CDs and DVDs, or watch DVDs while on the go. I was looking at these if anyone has suggestions:


Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

Reputable brand and reviews are all you need to look at.

I picked up an LG slim DVDRW USB drive a year back (I also use is sparingly), works when I need it.

If you don't have a DVD player on your television and wouldn't mind having one to use every blue moon then check to see if your tv supports USB dvd drives and which ones. Some Samsung and LG smart tv's support USB dvd drives for watching movies.


This is the one I bought: LG USB 2.0 Ultra Slim External DVDRW Model GP60NB50 - Newegg.com

That is one of the ones i was looking at. Does it take up 2 usb ports? In the pick it has a mini usb and then 2 regular usb connectors.

Pretty sure I've used it with a single usb, not the one that splits in to two. You should be fine.
