Type-C & USB 3.0 Ultra Slim DVD±RW Writer (TPE-CDVDRW)

Type-C & USB 3.0 Ultra Slim DVD±RW Writer (TPE-CDVDRW)
With the Penguin USB 3.0 (backward compatible with USB 2.0) Type-C & USB 3.0 Ultra Slim DVD±RW Writer (TPE-CDVDRW) you'll be getting the ultimate in modern DVD writing technology. Connect your USB DVD-RW drive to computers with either an older Type A USB port or newer faster USB 3.0 or Type-C port.

As optical drives have become devices for accessing legacy media formats rather than standard components on modern PCs some distributions have stopped including CD/DVD writing and playback applications. Core out of the box support for accessing data discs remains, but for writing discs we recommend searching for and installing a CD/DVD writing app from your distributions software center. One popular application is Brasero. Another feature you may find that you want support for is playback of commercial video DVDs. For that see our support documentation.
