Disc Writer: Writes to CD, DVD and DVD-RAM discs Disc Reader: Reads CD & DVD Audio, Video and Data formats Interface: USB 2.0 Color: Black USB Power Cable Included This is a brand-new external USB DVD+/-RW Disc Drive. It works with every version of Windows including XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 as well as Mac OSX. If your laptop or desktop computer has a USB port this drive will do the trick. This drive uses one USB cable (included) for both data and power. It is the best design I have seen. This external drive works with a variety of media: 24X CD-ROM, 24X CD-RW and 8X DVD, 5X DVD-RAM, 6X DVD + R Dual Layer, 6X DVD-R Dual Layer, 8X DVD + RW and 6X DVD-RW disc for burning. The sleek (slim) case features a built-in USB cable containment system for easy portability.
