Optical Drive options

3 posts in this topic

Always had issues when out and about, the once a year when I need an optical drive (DVD/RW) for my SP3, today it died..

 

The unit I had went EOL not long after I bought it, tried a few we had laying around in the office but once you put a disk in the drive it tries to read it and then disconnects/reconnects the drive endlessly..

 

Anyone here found any decent. preferably metal cased, DVD/RW drives that work on the half assed power that comes out of the USB port on the SP3?

I've had several over the years. I finally ended up with an LG version that was relatively cheap but worked well.  The power is most certainly the problem in most cases. I had one that came with a dual USB cable that used two ports for power. That one was good but died quick. Maybe wasn't so good. ;)
