I bought one as soon as I got my Samsung but cannot remember the make. Will have look when I go upstairs and post it. mine is a Slime type such as goes in normal Laptop but in a thin case. Was cheap from a Computer Fair at Sheffield Don Valley Stadium It does Dual layer DVDs does them all. it will work without extra power

No Idea, cannot see why you should have problems. Other than if used on netbook for films. Its the Processing Power that may be the Problem. Its a case of try, also it may vary Netbook to Netbook

i have been told w7 starter has no dvd codecs, which is amazing why did microsoft leave them outI thought that went out with xp.

been told to get vlc or k-lite with Media Player Classic Home Cinema. would either of these two do the job any advice on them please or have i been given moody advice by sales staff.
