Questions & Answers for Asus ASUS SDR-08B1-U 8x DVD-ROM Slim Drive

Question

Does this basically replay the cd reader for the laptop/computer?

I was wondering if this product works exactly like the cd reader? I have been looking for an external cd reader because I accidentally had liquid get on my laptop and ended up not getting it cleaned in time for things got ruined. Everything I have looked at are all cd/dvd burners and that ups the price. I just want a simple cd reader so I play games and listen to cds on my laptop. Thank you for responding.

It is intended to play games and such, but is much too slow to even read the disk if it is a high end game. Example: When I put Sims 2 in I can hear the disk spinning, but it never starts the game. It does this for installing most programs too, and the one game it did play for me no longer works after owning the drive for just a couple of months. I wouldn't reccomend this for anything except playing a movie or opening CDs with documents and files.

Yes, as long as the desktop PC has USB ports. Since this is an external drive, it would be outside of the desktop chassis rather inside the chassis.

Hello,
If your EPAD has a USB port, then the ODD will operate. If your EPAD doesn't have a USB port but has a transformer dock, then the ODD can operate off the dock. Thanks for your question.
