USB-C External DVD Drive Description

Our laptops are getting thinner and thinner every year. This makes them lighter, more portable and nicer to look at. What’s not to love? The lack of a dedicated disc drive, that’s what! Optical media drives may be less essential than they were a few years ago thanks to the advent of high speed internet and streaming services, but they’re still useful, and this USB-C External DVD Drive will fill the disc shaped hole in your heart.

The USB-C External DVD Drive may be somewhat of a technological throwback, but it’s still keeping up with the times! Thanks to its USB-C cable port, this USB CD drive measures 1.5 centimetres high, making it even thinner than your laptop! This low-profile isn’t just aesthetic, it also makes it easier to store when you’re not using it, and slotting it into your workspace.

The USB-C External DVD Drive can read all kinds of DVDs, audio CDs, CD-ROMS and even VCDs and a high speed. Does your favourite streaming service not have the movie you wanted to watch available? Stick the physical disc version into this external disc player and you’ll be watching in no time. Its 8x read speed means that playback will be smooth and continual.

As fast as it reads DVDs, the USB-C External DVD Drive reads CDs even faster. It can spin a CD at up to 24x times normal play speeds. So whether you’re importing your disc-bound musical library to put on a smartphone, or installing a retro game or old piece of software, this USB CD drive will make it lightning quick!

Of course reading is only half of what a good disc drive can do - it needs to be able to write as well! Luckily, this external drive writes as quickly as it reads, so if you need to burn your mixtape to CD for a car journey, or create a boot disc in case your operating system fails, it won’t take long.

Speaking of operating systems, the USB-C External DVD Drive is completely OS agnostic. It’ll work with Mac OS, Windows PCs and even Linux distributions. There’s no software to install or drivers to download, either. Just plug it into your computer’s USB port and this drive should start working immediately.

CD/DVD Drive

The drive in my Mackbook failed, I thought of getting it replaced but I’m told I can use the space to stuff another big hard drive in there!
So I started looking for an external CD/DVD Drive.
I found this one very quickly and it matches the Apple MacBook perfectly!
It was also on OnBuy, which is always good news!
It arrived quickly, well packaged with just a small very short instruction sheet saying just power on your laptop, plug the drive’s usb in and insert a disc....
Worked perfect,
Simple!
