Superior data protection with M-DISC™ Support

The M-DISC™uses a patent rock-like recording surface instead of organic dye to etch your data onto a disc. The M-DISC has been tested and proven to outlast standard DVDs currently on the market.


Slot Load in Style

The slot drives load discs with a simple glide that is fast and smooth compared to drives with a disc tray. By removing the complexities of the disc tray we have simplified the drive to operate in tight spaces and run silently without needing to open or close. Give your ultrabook a companion that looks and works great.


TV Connectivity

Enjoy your media on your TVs, digital photo frames and PCs by simply connecting your drive with USB cable.


8x Writing Speed

Burn more discs in less time with 8x DVD-Max writing speed.


Mini USB

Provides easy connection with Mini USB cable. No additional power source needed.


Slim Style

The overall slim design of only 0.55 inches high optimizes space for the slim OPU installation. It allows for a sleek companion to thin Ultrabooks and enhanced portability.


Silent Play

The Silent Play technology helps reduce noise during playback by recognizing different multimedia and automatically adjusting the playback speed according to its criteria for optimal performance.


Super Multi Compatibility

LG Super Multi Compatibility optical drives can read and write different types of disc formats in one convenient package. 1. DVD+R 2. RW DVD-R 3. RW DVD-RAM This gives you the option to choose the media best suited for each task.


Win 10 & MAC OS Compatible

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Nothing either on the outside packaging nor inside mentioned that this wasnt compatible with the most up to date Mac OS. Confirmed by LG customer support when I had issues with running the firmware. Had to return.

I bought this disk drive last night from BestBuy. It worked last night. Today neither my iMac Macbook Pro ThinkPad or MSI will detect when it is connected. To add to this a disk is stuck in there and I cannot eject it no matter what I do.

slim quiet no disk tray--disk slides in

shamrockrepublic 1/26/2021

I bought an LG Gram laptop which doesnt have an internal cd/dvd drive because thats what makes this type laptop so lightweight. I searched for an LG external drive and found this one thats also light not to mention very compact. It doesnt have a tray you just slide the disk in and it moves back out. I really like this feature. Quiet too. Really nice external drive highly recommend.
