What happens when your laptops DVD/CD drive breaks? You can spend a ton trying to fix it, or you can pick up a slim external Novapolt. Better yet, pick up one with USB 3.0 for speed and charging. USB 3.0 devices can be up to 10 times the speed of 2.0. Typically this is the blue USB plug on your laptop/desktop.
Setting up the Novapolt DVD USB 3.0 drive is a snap. It is plug and play. Even running Ubuntu 14.04 (linux), this DVD burner worked out of the box. Nothing was needed to set-up the DVD drive for Windows 10 and Ubuntu 14.04 . Just plug it in and add you CD or DVD.
I did not expect the DVD burner to work out of the box with linux, but it did!! It’s available at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BS1W6GU #review #externaldvddrive
