LG Disc Drives & Burners

An LG DVD burner is an excellent device for copying files, including images, audio recordings, and videos. Staples® carries several types of internal and external optical disc writers that vary by speed, media, and software.

Choose Between an Internal or External LG DVD Burner
To replace an existing optical drive with a DVD writer, match the form factor of both drives and verify that your laptop or desktop meets the minimum requirements for the new DVD writer. Most need at least an Intel® Pentium® 4.1GHz speed processor, 1GB of memory, 64MB of video memory, and 20GB of hard drive space. A burner also needs 128MB of video memory to play DVDs.

Installation of internal drives is fairly simple. Back up the computer's hard drive to an external site before opening the case. After opening the computer, unplug the existing drive from the motherboard and connect the new one using an IDE or SATA connector. External DVD writers and drives don't require any installation. They are plug-and-play. Simply plug the USB cable into the computer. External drives are easy to use, work the same as internal ones, and only need a free USB port to run.

Find the Right Type of Blank Media for LG DVD Burners
Most DVD writers are compatible with CDs, CD-Rs, CD-RWs, DVDs, DVD-Rs, DVD-RWs, and double-layer discs. The CD-Rs and DVD-Rs are recordable discs. A user can add data to these until they're full or until the recording is finalized. For reusable blank media, choose CD-RWs and DVD-RWs which are rewritable. These DVDs can be rewritten up to 1,000 times before they start to wear down. Several models work with triple and quad-layer DVDs. Not all DVD burners are backward compatible with CDs. Some older model DVD players may not read multiple-layer discs. Always check the full specifications to verify media compatibility.

How Fast Do LG DVD Burners Read and Write?
Speed varies by the type of media and connection. A CD records faster than single and multiple-layer DVDs, which have more data. Rewritable CDs and DVDs take the longest to burn because they're completing a two-step process. The most common speeds are 8X, 16X, and 24X. For external drives, the transfer speed between the drive and computer also affects speed. LG DVD burners come with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 connections.

Are LG DVD Burners Compatible with All Operating Systems?
Most LG DVD writers work with all Microsoft® Windows® operating systems as well as macOS® X. Check the writer's manual for compatibility with Linux™ and other operating systems.

Do LG DVD Burners Come with Any Software?
DVD writers are plug-and-play devices that don't need software to run. Some models still come with free and trial software programs that you can install, such as video editing, playback, and label and cover creators.

How Much Do LG DVD Burners Weigh?
Internal drives weigh from 0.3 to 1.54 pounds, and external drives weigh between 0.44 and 0.52 pounds. An LG external DVD burner is light and slim, with a durable case for storage and portability. These can slide into any carrying case for convenient portability.
