USB 3.0 Ultra Slim DVD±RW Writer (TPE-USBDVDRWM)

USB 3.0 Ultra Slim DVD±RW Writer (TPE-USBDVDRWM)
With the Penguin USB 3.0 (backward compatible with USB 2.0) Ultra Slim DVD±RW Writer (TPE-USBDVDRWM) you'll be getting the ultimate in modern DVD writing technology with support for M-DISC™ which uses a rock-like recording surface instead of organic dye to etch your data onto a disc. The M-DISC has been tested and proven to outlast standard DVDs currently on the market.

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.
  • Superior data protection with M-DISC™ Support

  • Silent Play: The Silent Play technology helps reduce noise during playback by recognizing different multimedia and automatically adjusting the playback speed according to its criteria for optimal performance.

  • Super Multi Compatibility: Can read and write different types of disc formats such as DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, and DVD-RAM

  • Support for all popular and libre (free) distributions
