How do I burn a disk?

The DVD-Writer must be used in conjunction with your OS or with a third-party disc-burning software in order to burn discs. In the case of data-files, you can drag and drop a file directly onto the DVD-RAM icon within (My) Computer. As long as you have inserted a blank disc into the

DVD-Writer, your OS will display a Disc-Burning Wizard which will guide you through the rest of the process.

Is the DVD-Writer comaptible with Mac and Linux?

The DVD-Writer is compatible with nearly every Plug and Play OS including:

Windows XP/Vista/7, Mac OS X and many versions of Linux.

How do I download drivers or other support software for the


As a Plug and Play device, the DVD-Writer does not use separate drivers. It is controlled entirely by your OS. There is no need to install any software in order to use your DVD-Writer. Although, after-market burning software is useful in some situations; like when burning DVD-Video files.

How do I eject a disc if the DVD-Writer has been unplugged?

There is a small hole to the bottom right side of the front-panel eject button for just this purpose. Merely insert a safety-pin or an elongated paper-clip into this hole and push slowly, but firmly, until you feel the disc-tray moving towards your hand. Continue pressing until the tray pops open. Then you can pull the tray the rest of the way out and remove the disc.

Note: most computers’ USB ports provide sufficient power to power the drive. In some cases, an

AC adapter may be required (not included).

3. Once properly connected, you should see the new drive under (My) Computer as “DVD-RAM”. Your

DVD-Writer should be ready to use without further setup.
