    Thanks OP, been looking at a portable DVD drive for some time, best deal by far.

  •  

    I am looking for reading and copying a handycam mini dvd's ? can this help ??

    •  

      I think you're better off switching media to nas

      •  

        Media to Nas ?? elaboarte.

        •  

          I meant to read the mini dvds you have and then store them on a PC or a network attached storage. mini dvds may not be a good backup option for long

            @HunterBargainHunter: Yes these mini dvd's are not reliable i had them used years back just need to copy the data from them and store it.

            • +2 votes

              @Joyi27: I believe this drive would be able to read the mini DVD's, you can probably find out on their website before you buy.

              What HunterBargainHunter was suggesting is once read and the data extracted, you'd be better storing said data on a Network Attached Storage (NAS), probably in Raid to protect against drive failure.

              •  

                @Bozman: and also an offsite copy in case your House catches fire or NAS is stolen! I have see it happen on several occasions i.e. Family Pics and Memories gone up in smoke (Think of Bush Fire Victims). There is no replacing them hence worthwhile considering as USB Drives are cheap (ish).

                Method:
                - Main Data is on NAS.
                - NAS Mirrors itself to a USB attached Drive.
                - One keeps USB drive offsite (Workplace, Friends, Family etc places).

                Ideally you will have a min of x2 USB Drives, One for onsite, one for offsite. Better still is a third one, this way when rotating the USB drives, there is always one offsite no matter what :-).

                  @Borg: How much data are you talking here? You can get a TB or so of cloud storage for not a whole lot of cash these days. One on prem, one in the cloud. Much easier.

                  •  

                    @b2dz: With Video etc 1TB an fills up quickly. I have around 6TB data myself (a lot of backups). The problem with cloud isn't so much the cost and more to do the Upload Speeds. I agree though, Cloud will suit some but not all. Depends on data type I suppose and whether one is happy to place your Data in the cloud to begin with. I would never use Cloud for single source storage though as like to have the Data on hand locally at all times.

              • +1 vote

                @Bozman: Yeah just need to be sure regarding mini dvd's, storing of data is not an issue as i might do it on cloud etc.

  • +11 votes

    These are trash.

    If you really must try your luck with one then do yourself a favour and pay the extra 12c for the one sold directly by Amazon as it will make returning it so much easier.

    •  

      Thanks, cancelled mine one and got it from Amazon Au.

    •  

      Trash? Care to explain further.. and provide a link the the 12 cent one sold directly?

    •  

      I can confirm. I have this and it repeatedly disconnects

  • +2 votes

    Surely you'd want one that can read or burn blu rays too, if you were going to bother at all.

    • +1 vote

      There are very few uses for Bluray really, except for Bluray movies, most PC stuff comes on CD or DVD, as far as burning I think most people would stick to microSD

      • +1 vote

        Even fewer uses for DVD. So if you need one you may as well buy both. Blu ray readers must be virtually free by now. The ancient PS3 launched with one a million years ago.

        • +4 votes

          Both readers and writers are pretty cheap, but the blank discs aren't and they're damn near impossible to find.

  • +1 vote

    Is there one of these that can also play blu rays?

  •  

    Dumb question but can this record traditional CD-R audio CD's (not MP3)?

    •  

      Pretty sure dvd can burn cd-r but check spec to be sure.
      From on top of my head, dvd burner can burn dvd and cd.
      Bluray can burn bluray, dvd and cd.

        From on top of my head, dvd burner can burn dvd and cd.

        Aren't you afraid of it falling off?

    •  

      Well Yes, that's what it is i.e. a "DVD Rewriter (8x DVDR Writing Speed). DVD's just hold more than CD's but both can be read on a DVD player/writer :-)

    • +2 votes

      I'm 100% certain it can. A DVD burner can burn CD R

    •  

      Thanks all!

    • +1 vote

      It can. However, I think 4-5 years ago I went to buy some recordable CD-Rs from a MSY store. The staff gave a look (basically he felt that seriously? you want CD-Rs) and re-confirmed it. Couldn't help it. Old car…

  •  

    Do they even sell blank DVDs nowadays?

    •  

      Fewer people buy and fewer places sell blank DVD discs nowadays. Msy used to sell heaps of blank discs but now only 3 or 4 stores have stock.

      A DVD burner in 1999 would have been ultra high-tech for the average person.

    • +1 vote

      Yeah, 1999 was when the moon got blasted out of orbit by a nuclear explosion and the moon colony travelled to the stars as I recall.

    •  

      2002 was when it started becoming more mainstream and affordable

    •  

      That is when I bought my first DVD burner, 4x for $600. Took 20 min and was best not to do anything else on the PC just in case…

      Late 1999, first year uni

      •  

        You got ripped off. I bought one at the same time (scsi 4x w/ pci card) for $350.

        •  

          Maybe it was $400. I can't be sure anymore.
          Spent ages flipping through the green guide in Melbourne before finding the shop lol

    Lol .. they still make these things!? funny.

    This is a POS .. can I neg this product?

    •  

      It's from Harris Tech. So, it is not a surprise.
      Maybe some people still have some old candid videos / movies on DVDs.
      Jokes aside, some Blu-ray players can upscale DVD movies reasonably well.

  •  

    Ah, the memories of being excited about dual layer dvd when it first came out…

  •  

    I remember having to buy the 80 min CD-R's in a single pack as the spindles were only 74 min CD-R's and I paid $299.00 for my first CD Burner

  • +2 votes

    Thanks OP - I ordered direct through Amazon for the 12c extra, was only thinking yesterday that I now have no computers in the house that are capable of reading a disk… this will let me access (and likely rip the rare DVD's that I have that don't exist in any other format).

  •  

    What the hell is that thing, is it betamax, I'll never know gone to transfer some data.

  •  

    Does this play the small dvds? Have a bunch of videos of my kids that I need to transfer on the cloud

    •  

      Yes. Every DVD player would play them afaik

      The smaller ones have the same sized central hole and thus should work.

      •  

        Slot loading DVD drives are probably the sole exception (e.g. the DVD drives on older Apple Macs and the USB Apple SuperDrive)

    •  

      If you bought this by any chance and mini dvd played and can copy too, please do let know … Thanks

    my dream is to have a basement where all we watch is VHS movies on a VHS player so each to their own…

      My lite on CD burner cost that much in 2002

  •  

    I really need something like this, last I bought (unbranded, but looks exactly like this one) it repeatedly clicked and never read CDs…tried it on 3 PCs. Maybe a defective one, might take another chance with this one.
    Can somebody provide a link for the Direct AU purchase please?
    Cheers -sonny

      click New (8) from $25.99 FREE Delivery and you can find Amazon one for $26.11

      •  

        Thanks for the help mate :)

  •  

    Do they sell betamax players too??

  •  

    These are a very handle little unit. Had one a few years, doesn't get a lot of use, but does exactly what is says on the tin. Can't beat it at this price.

    •  

      Does it run entirely off one USB port?

      I have an old Asus one but it needs extra power from a second port.

      •  

        Yep, one cable.

  •  

    Price is $37.99 for me? Sold out perhaps?

    •  

      No it's still in stock. It's just a sudden price jackup.

    •  

      Price went up.

      Tried buying it about 2.5 hours ago because I haven't had an optic drive on my PC for over a decade and have a bunch of old discs with photos and videos that I want to backup. All through checkout it was fine. Cart showed $26 for the drive and I'd added something else to put the total at just over $40 for free postage and I purchased it.

      Minutes later on seeing my email invoice I saw I was charged $38 for the drive alone. Went back to Amazon and it was still showing as $26. I refreshed and it still showed $26. I Cancelled my order and went to reorder again and the price then showed $38.

  •  

    I bought an external Bluray burner for $70 in 2014 (eBay.com I recon). Does pretty much everything CD/DVD/Rw. A little redundant now, but still better than this deal I would think.

  •  

    Thanks OP. Since upgrading my PC, I've been on the look out for an external DVD drive to see what's on all the old DVDs I haven't looked at for years.

  •  

    Compatible with nvidia shield?

  •  

    Bought an Asus external DVD writer back in 2013 because it was cheap, $19.

    Used it exactly once (just a few months ago actually, went to use the drive in my tower for the first time in forever and found it doesn't work anymore)

  •  

    I'm looking at https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/offer-listing/B0771N88GZ

    And I do not see one from Harris Technology. Anyone Else?

  •  

    Thanks, bought.
