System Requirements:- Pentium II 300MHz or equivalent, 64MB RAM, 800MB to 1GB free hard drive space.
Note: DVD playing and recording require a USB2.0 port. If your laptop/notebook computers only
have USB1.1 ports, you can use our USB2.0
PCMCIA card to add USB2.0 ports through PCMCIA slot.
There are two kinds of USB Ports: high-power ports, which can supply 5V maximum 500mA power; and low-power ports, which can supply 5V Maximum 100mA power. Most desktop computers are high-power USB ports. On a laptop computer, normally at least one USB port is high-power port, and the other USB port(s) may be high-power ports or low-power ports. Please check your laptop manual for specification.
The DVD drive requires 5V 400mA- 800mA power. One USB port may not supply enough power, so it also comes with an extra power cable to get extra power from PS/2 keyboard ports or another USB port.
