Questions and Answers

Do you have you a question about the LiteOn eBAU108 (0.5 Inch) 8x Speed 0.75MB Dual Layer DVD±RW Dual Layer/RAM USB 2.0 External Slim Drive (White)?

Q: Does it work on apple? (I don't know which OS exactly, only it;s a fairly modern lap-top) I assumed it would, 'cause of standards and the like.... but there's just no telling with Apple, and the Lite-on website says only "Windows 8", but I'm sure that's not exhaustive...

Q: I use this unit on my laptop with Windows 10, but my other laptop which runs Windows 7 will not recognise the unit. Q; Do I need drivers for WIndows 7?

I've been to the Liteon web site and there are NO DRIVERS available for Windows 7. I can use it on Windows 10, but not Windows 7
