Spotted this great deal in my local store but unfortunatly it was sold out. Pre-Owned of course.

Goes well with all the cheap 48p HD-DVDs that were going around last year. Who said High-Def had to cost you three figures.

Also works great as a external DVD drive for all you netbook users.

Works great as an external DVD drive for netbook users that need to install something from disk too.

I think you'd get more heat if it were titled "External USB DVD drive £4.99" =)

And it's expired why?

Correct me if I'm wrong but 4.99 is three figures lol

Yes this is a joke and I know what you mean

Why, can you use that as an external drive too?

I imagine it would make a mess when you put the DVD in.

Hot.

if you put tea in a choc teapot - it melts

so if i put in a dvd or hd-dvd - this dvd drive will do what exactly..............

I bought one of these about a 18 months ago when they went down to £19 new.. One of the best buys I ever made. I've had HD DVD's for £2 for all that time when I couldn;t justify buying Blu-Ray's at £19.. Now Blu-Ray players are sub-£100 and the back catalogue on Blu-Ray starts at a fiver, I've upgraded, but this still comes in useful and a DVD drive for the netbook, which is invaluable. Anyone who can;' see this is a great deal is quite frankly a big barrel of monkey spunk.

LOL:-D

Popped down to Game (Hartlepool) a few days ago, only to find it boarded up (and no "we've moved to...." sign), so I guess I'll not get my hands on one of these. Would have strongly considered it at this price, though as someone else said, blu-ray's become an affordable option now.

Stone cold bargain. When I bought one at £20 I was impressed, but this is downright ridiculous. Brilliant find.

sold out :cry::cry::cry::cry::cry:

Is this a Nationwide deal?

Not that it matters anyway, Game Dumfries/Gretna/Carlisle Never have these sorta good deals.

Going to be another wild chase for some. Always the way with game.

euch, it has an additional feature I don't need despite it performing many other useful features admirably.

Great, now all I need is to buy all 4 dvds that came out for it

seconded.

Its not that hot if you can't get one and I never saw HD DVDs selling at 48p.

Hot. So can this be used with a standard PC as a USB DVD drive to read normal CD's and DVD's or will it only work with HD-DVD's?

Yes you can and it's very easy, you just need software that can play HD-DVDs like PowerDVD 8 for example.

Like someone else said, anyone who doesn't think is a hot deal is a cockmunch of the highest order.

I've had one of these drives for a while but didn't realise it would work on my netbook. Just plugged it in and it played dvds and cds straight away without having to install any software! I tried an HD DVD out on it and it said I had to pay for an HD plugin so didn't bother. I bought my drive a while ago for £100 and i'm still very happy with it. I don't think I'll get a Blu Ray player until I see a good one available that's multiregion.

Works fine connected to a PC, but if you want to watch HD-DVD's on your PC you'll need extra software. Normal CD/DVD's work fine.

Oooops, apparently you can't use it to play games from on your 360, I hadn't tried it myself, just heard it was possible from a friend. D'oh!!

Thanks, I did have a look on Google but people said that it only played HD-DVD's and if you wanted to play a CD or a DVD you needed to use the other drive on a Xbox.

Rep added.

is it dvdr or does it just plat dvds?
btw thanks.

what the hell - just got 8 emails from this thread but Im not subscribed? (user error on my part Im sure)

Nearly 500 degrees and nobody including the OP has seen any in stock..........this is a fabulous deal but if there is no stock its a non-existant deal. If someone confirms stock then I'll vote it hot.........

I don't think this is true, certainly not on mine anyway.

Correct, can't use it for xbox games, just dvd's and cd's, oh and HD-dvds :-)

:prop: always one

superb deal - and a great add on
I have my recently purchased Viera linked to this through my Xbox and have a fantastic collection of about 30 movies - for all that cost me less than £80 6 months ago,,,
I know its an outdated format but im not a telly addict like a few of the nose picking - burger munchin dossers on here ;-) so its a brilliant stop gap till i feel the need to buy the other overpriced option - so when im done I will flog it or even just bin it - also as mentioned fantastic device for my 2 netbooks...

HOT

PS: In Gamestation in Leamington you can get them for £11 with 6 month warranty - saw them today.

This is exactly what has happened to me and I was just going to ask this. Can you plug in any external USB DVD drive or does it need some special MS firmware on it?

Edit: Never mind, I have seen from later posts this is not true.
