If it is the same one that goes into the 5670, I have had trouble finding a good quality back-up software that will work with the drive. XP Pro backup writes to it just fine but it has its limitations. Reading/Writing CD's works ok, although I don't really do much writing to CD. Playing DVD's is great, no lapses, even if I am using the wi-fi. The tray seems a bit flimsey. Overall I am glad I bought it with the system.
