Generates its own sound effects While this is certainly not the loudest DVD drive I've ever had, it does generate the most interesting noises of any I've used over the decades.When you insert a disc, or when the system boots and initializes the drive, the drive sounds like air brakes are being applied on an 18-wheeler. It's not super loud, but if you're not expecting it, the sound effect is disconcerting. My rig has liquid cooling on the CPU, and I pictured steam escaping when I first heard this noise.When the drive is reading from a disc, it periodically makes the sound of a squeegee being dragged across a windshield. The sound is reminiscent of an old full-service gas station.Other than that, it seems to work. The drive was immediately recognized in Windows 10, and has done everything asked of it without fail.A software disc is included, but I didn't install it because I couldn't read what the label said (I think it's in Chinese, but I'm not 100% sure). No cables, mounting screws, blank discs, or documentation are included (although the disc might include some documentation). This is definitely a no-frills OEM package. But if you need an inexpensive DVD burner for a new build, and you don't mind the sounds of air brakes and squeegees, it's a decent drive for the money. 4Software is useless. And drive won't work on a Mac Pro 5.1. (I AM WRONG on this later point!!) seems nice enough. But the accompanying disc included an application for using the drive for burning discs. Nice. So I installed it. Then it asked for a serial number...? There's no serial number to be found on the disc sleeve...the box it came in went in the trash right away. Nor is there anything on the disc itself.So the software is useless to me. NOTE: I did not try it on a Winbox I imagine the results would be different there.(EDIT: the following paragraph is wrong! See at the end.) Next surprise (I had thought drives, in general, were OS agnostic). Not this one, apparently. Installed as a second DVD in my Mac Pro 5.1 (2010) it first requires surgery to remove the tray bezel (the part that says ASUS on front of the tray that sticks out for the disc). It was too large to get thru the doors the MP 5.1 uses. Then, when the tray would extend and I schlepped it back into the carrier, the dang thing wouldn't respond to the open command at all. Guess I'll have to pull it and bank it for a winbox. Deducted a star. This is based on it's suitability for my needs. Not a smudge on ASUS: I have 4 ASUS mobos, 3 with ASUS video cards and around cards, and a couple ASUS tablet/Chromebook devices. I'm an ASUS fan. But not for this thing.Correction:The Bezel removal WAS necessary in this installation (would not be in another brand's device, I imagine). But the cable was not plugged in properly on the back of the drive. The early Mac Pro's had very little room for hands and the built-in connections were as short as possible, so getting the connections right is a problem for clumsy old dolts like myself.This is a nice unit. And I am ashamed that I spoke unwell of it. 5Excellent device from Asus I highly recommend it. I seem to have the worse luck with these cd/dvd recorders but I told a friend I would try once more to record two music cds for him... It was a disaster and I went on line and ordered this recorder from Amazon. It was here in a day and a half. I pulled out the old one and this one plugged right into the same connectors. I installed the software... that was easy. The songs were still waiting for recording so all I had to to was hit the burn button. It took about 20 minutes to record then the cd auto ejected. I handed him the cd's, he went to his car and plugged one in... Awesome!!! every song had recorded and the quality was great. I have never had a problem with any Asus product I have purchased. This was a great deal. 5It's a DVD-RW that works just fine when you get a working drive ,thanks amazon for stepping up. Well for $22 you can't really do much better than this optical drive.My last Asus DVD-RW croaked after 4 years of solid use and I went ahead and ordered this (OEM) Asus DVD-RW optical. It worked for about 20 days and then began acting up. I called Amazon and explained how the new Asus DVD-RW I bought was no longer working, fully expecting to be forced to return a $19.50 DVD-RW that is not worth my time to send back.Amazon stepped up! When (Asus would not!) and sent me a replacement drive that works just fine. Thanks to Amazon's sales and tech teams for allowing me a new drive without me being forced to send the original back to them. This was customer service above the call of duty and why I shop mostly at amazons online store.Sincerely, Steven LevelI thought about buying a Plextor but the reviews are pretty bad for the 3 units I have read reviews about and the price was twice the Asus or close to it. 4Quiet & fast cd drive, meant for replacing old burners in a PC I noticed Asus burners were used in some older HP products I've had in the past, which performed over 7 years, so I decided to give this one a try. I can't attest to the long term quality of this drive yet, but it's basic functions are great. It's extremely fast, burning CD from iTunes in about 3 minutes. It's also very quiet during burning and playback (if you are in the next room over, with the door open, you can't hear it running.) I replaced a CD drive in a Dell PC (old tower style - Windows 8) with this Asus and I was concerned about the fit, as this PC has a large plastic door over the cd tray, but it fits perfectly. ***Be prepared that this product doesn't come with instructions or any cables. This drive is geared towards people replacing old cd drives, where you remove the old product and slide in the new, reusing the existing cables. There's no need to install any software, you'll get a Windows prompt the first time you play a cd requesting what actions you'd like windows to take any time this type of CD is entered. Other than that, just be prepared to remove some phillips screws and swap out cables. 5works but no better than the one it replaces; still doesn't read some OLD CDs If you're buying this to replace a dead drive, fine. If you're buying to replace a drive that does not read certain discs - in my case old CDs with some wear - you might want to consider my experience:I bought this drive to replace an internal LG "Super Multi" DVD Rewriter Model: GH24Ns70. The reason: The "Super Multi" LG was not reading some old music CDs.However. The DVD/CD drive on an old HP reads most of these old music CDs as does an old CD/DVD USB drive - which I connected to the Windows 7 system for which I bought this replacement to read those "unreadable" CDs.The problem with the USB drive: it can be insanely slow to rip a music CD.I installed this Asus drive today and, as mentioned, it does not read some old music CDs - all but one of these old CDs was read by the other drives mentioned. The new Asus drive burned a CD fine and read a Linux install DVD I burned yesterday. So, other than not reading some old CDs it seems to be OK.However, so was the one it replaced.Something I learned turning my music CDs into flac files: Sometimes, even if my drives cannot read/rip a CD or some files on a CD, I can create an image file (iso, nrg if you use Nero, etc.) of that CD, burn it to a blank CD and then rip it to flac files. This has worked with all but one or two CDs and those were badly scratched. Don't ask why. I don't know. With the right software (VLC, perhaps) you might be able to rip directly from the image file.Lesson learned. Never throw away anything.Meantime - always good to have a spare. 2Drive seems fine, but the packaging is horrible! I think the drive itself is probably fine. Easy to install and it's fairly quiet, at least based on reading from disc. I connected this drive using an IDE to SATA adapter. I was never able to get the drive to burn a disc successfully. It would either freeze my computer part way through the burn, or the burn would complete but say that it was unsuccessful. I'm thinking that going through the adapter may have something to do with that. A direct SATA connection might be better, but my computer doesn't have any available SATA connections left. All I have is a single IDE/PATA connection, hence the use of the adapter. I take off two starts because the packaging is absolutely horrible. The drive comes in a plastic bag, no retail box. It is not protected by bubble wrap or styrofoam. All that's in the shipping box is a couple of those plastic air bubbles. The drive is free to bounce around in the box easily. I'm not even sure that the item I received is even a new drive. And, since the drive is so loose in the box, I'm not even sure that it isn't damaged during shipping and handling. The drive does come with a disc that has some software on it, as well as a PDF User's Guide. You don't need to install any of the software for the drive to work though. Windows will automatically install a driver for the drive. I found a suitable IDE/PATA optical drive so I'm going to go with that instead of trying to use an IDE to SATA adapter to connect a SATA drive. 3A Great Drive for Accurate CD Rips I've owned this drive for 3 years and it has been a reliable drive. Some might say that these are going the way of the dodo and while that may be true, as long as CDs are manufactured, I'll continue to use them. For that reason, It's hard for me to trust online stores that sell "Lossless" versions because I would rather rip it myself.I have it set-up and primarily use with Exact Audio Copy 1.3 to rip lossless copies of my CDs to FLAC format. This (DRW-24B1ST i) has a read offset of +6 as reported by AccurateRip.com for accurate CD ripping.As far as DVD burning/writing goes, I have never used this feature so I can't testify to it's effectiveness on this drive. As for cd ripping though, It has been nothing short of a great drive to use and I would highly recommend it if you are beginner or an experienced user of the art of CD ripping. 5Perfect, no complaints Even though DVDs are becoming more and more obsolite, I thought it would be nice to include one in my PC build.Pros:-not much to say, works perfectly no complaintsCons:-can get REALLY loud sometimes, but isn't a big dealThis product is pretty straight foreward. Uses one SATA data connector and one SATA power connector. It worked with no problems for me. Just lock it into place, put in the cables, and you're good to go. 5The 50 or so fails were mostly bad discs. So when the burner started going bad ... OK...This review is about my experience with the second of this item I've bought. The first one of this same burner of a few years ago was "fantastic". I burnt over ( I don't exaggerate here ), 2,000 cds/dvds successfully. The 50 or so fails were mostly bad discs. So when the burner started going bad I bought the same one again. In a couple months it is so bad, It needs replacement. In the last 2 weeks I've had at least 10 bad burns that I do, blame on the burner. Since the previous one was great I can only assume that this one is a lemon, so don't give up on it so soon as an option. That being said, this one is VERY noisy, takes an hour or more to burn, if at all. The first burner was not noisy at all and burnt in the correct amount of time,depending on whether it was a cd or dvd and the chosen functions. I have DVDFAB, that I've been happy with for my DVD burning since 2003 and they update monthly so I know it's not the program at fault. If you get one of these burners watch and listen to it carefully before your warranty is gone. Mine went bad after the warranty expired. If you buy one of these burners, Please don't review it until at least a few months after you've had good or bad results with it. Reviews by people who praise something because it got to them fast, arrived in good condition, or any number of inane comments that tell nothing of the quality of the product, is of no value to a "thinking" person. What to look for now, to replace it.... Good hunting. 1
