    Thumbs up External CD/DVD drive

    Hi guys, brilliant forum.
    Tried plugging my external disk drive into one of the dock's USB ports today, just to see if it would play or even offer to rip from it.
    The pad didn't even acknowledge its presence, let alone try & do anything with it.
    Anyone else tried this?

    Yes, it has been tried, even with ASUS external drives. There are no drivers installed on the TF to recognize them, so it does not work. Pretty much the only devices that work in the TF are mass storage devices.

    Looking at the date on this question, it's been some time now and the new 700 and Jelly Bean has been introduced. Is there a way to hook an external dvd player up to the 700T?

    I have a Trend Micro for Android that I just bought for my PC and it's on my install disc for Android.

    So I bought a Samsung DVD player/writer and used the docking keyboard for more power and it still would not recognize the dvd player. I plugged in the power charger on the dock and it still would not do anything.

    Can I download drivers now for Android to use an external dvd player?

    Thanks.

    Dan - There are more recent threads on Samsung DVD - I did a search on Google -
    (Samsung DVD site:transformerforums.com) and this is one of the threads that may help.

    Wireless Samsung DVD-RW - stream your DVDs to your tablet, back it up & more.

    Angry External cd/dvd drive DOES work with Asus transformer pad + keyboard

    yes, I recently got this to work. Bought a drive to enable me to burn/rip music and watch movies. Works as Plug & play, no need to install separate drivers. See my separate thread for further details. Will post a link to it.
