Samsung portable cd/dvd

Mon Jul 09, 2012 4:54 am

Hello,
Just need to let kiwi pi's know (and any who can buy this)
Have bought a new Samsung Slim portable cd/dvd read/write USB powered drive
from Ascent Technologies in Auckland for around $65.00NZ.
Plugged it into my powered hub (2amps) inserted a disc and presto it works out of the box.
Magic, and no I do not have any association with them except as a customer.
There may be other issues further down the track but as of now my little lunchbox
has a working DVD burner attached to it.
