I thought buying this would allow me view Blu-ray discs but I had to pay extra for a software package. Not acceptable.

Blue Ray Burner with Cyberlink software package.

Tahoephoto 1/8/2019

I bought this to back up photos and irreplaceable files onto M-disc. I didnt have Blu Ray burning software. I wanted to back up onto 100 gig discs. There seemed to be lots of reviews online saying to stay away from the 100 gig discs and that the 25 gig discs were more reliable to burn. I dont have the choice. I wanted to save these in a safe deposit box... OK so on to the review. There are 2 plugs that folks complain about without any facts as to weather or not they are necessary. I dont mind 2 plugs. If they designed this device for large capacity and for reliability then they must have decided 2 plugs work better. Im not an engineer and so I trust this is the correct way to transfer important info reliably. I burned 5 100 gig M-Disc Blu Ray without error. I bought the Cyberlink software package which included a 100 gig M-Disc. I wasnt absolutely sure that I was getting a M-Disc. It just said there was a 100 gig disc included then went on to explain the quality and reliability of M-Disc. Sometimes these deals do that to make you think youre getting a M-Disc. In this case yes they sent the M-Disc. I almost bought just the burner because the description on some offers made me think that they included the software. So for about $10 more I got the software and a 100 gig M-disc. Thats a great deal The software loaded onto my Windows 10 laptop just fine. The Blu Ray burner was instantly recognized when I plugged it in. I needed to choose the Blu Ray player in the software menu. Then I dragged and dropped files into the files to be burned area of the software. The software would show the space on the disc available and the combined size of the files I selected on a graph overlay on the disc space availability. I was able to burn files and fill up the disc confidently. There was only 400 megabytes left as free space. The files burned at 4x I knew that it would take a while we are talking burning 100 gigs of important info. I dont mind waiting because I am doing this and then storing it. I just want it done right. So I chose the function that checks the info once its burned. I was relieved each time I saw that the files burned correctly. These discs are expensive. I dont want to pay for more Therefore it was nice to have a free 100 gig disc with this package to make sure this burner worked I recommend getting the Cyberlink + 100 Gig M-disc package if you do not have burning software. Then I checked my files and they were ok. This burner has a button in front to open the drawer. If you have this software package or any other blu ray viewing software on your computer this does play Blu Ray movies. But you have to have the software. Even though it plays the Blu Ray discs this is not a stand alone DVD player. Some folks may already have software and you can use to view the DVDs. However even though I have a DVD player built into my laptop it is not blu ray. Im glad I got this software package. This device is quiet. I would recommend this to burn important info on expensive discs. I burned 5 out of 5 without error. I used both plugs. One of my plugs was USB 3. the other USB 2. Why some folks complain that theres 2 plugs I dont know. I would think the engineers made it like this to make it work well. If one plug is good I would think 2 would be better. Each plug has a finite amount of transfer capacity. Adding another plug adds capacity. I will recommend this player to anyone.
