I can’t believe I just spent 200 dollars on an external/PORTABLE DVD/CD writer that can’t run off USB power!!!
What’s the point, Pioneer?
There’s even a deceiving picture of a man on a beach with a laptop… oh how I wish.

I picked this up from an Air Force base I was deployed to and was impressed. I have an external burner at home, but needed one here and the size was definitely a factor. My other drive is nearly as large as my Dell C400 and weighs more, but this is the size of 2 CD cases stacked on top of one another and weighs next to nothing. Burn speeds arent super, but waht do you expect from a portable drive. For USB 1.1 use i highly reccommend it!
Flawless performance on USB connection. For some reason my laptop sometimes does not recognize the drive if connected on Firewire. Or it recognizes it and when I put a blank DVD disk it does not recognize it as a DVD writer. Could be a problem with my laptop set up or the fact I am using a card connector for Firewire.
