The ultra-slim USB 2.0 Portable DVD Drive, DVSM-PC58U2V is an affordable, portable external DVD drive and is the perfect companion for a laptop or netbook that is not equipped with DVD Drive. As a high quality alternative to expensive options from laptop manufacturers, this DVD drive is a sleek, ultra-slim DVD drive finished with a high gloss coating. Powered by the USB port, a separate AC adapter is not required. A second USB cable connected to your computer is used to power the DVD drive. This means fewer cables to carry when travelling. Plus, it also comes with the CyberLink DVD software suite to burn DVDs and CDs for backup.
