This does so much for the price that you pay for it. I wanted it so that I could transfer music CD's onto iTunes. It does this perfectly well with very simple on screen prompts. I then create compilation CD's in the order that I like the music to play. I've also used it on my netbook to burn music onto CD-R's. I've stored very precious pictures from my computers which don't have a DVD writer onto discs. I plan to transfer my videos from my netbook onto DVD's to free up space using this device. So pleased that I bought it.

Works with WinXP - after some jiggerypokery

Surprisingly compact and very convenient, I bought this for my old desktop WinXP SP3 machine after the internal IDE drive failed. This Samsung is simple to connect but the supplied software took some persistence to set up, as initially it could not read any discs. There are no separate drivers on the CD, so you just have to install the whole of Nero12. I had to install/uninstall the software twice before finally after the third install it started working properly and can both burn and read. So it now works OK, for best results I'm watching DVDs with WMP11, and to burn discs I only put in the blank after Nero finally asks for it. It was worth persisting with, overall it seems good value for money.
