    External CD drive and drivers

    Is it possibe to use an external cd drive connected through the USB port? If so, do I need drivers to run the cd drive?
    A further question, I cannot find where to turn on the front camera when using Skype, please could you advise me where to find it.

    Is it possible? Yes..
    Do you need a driver? Yes.
    Is a driver available? No
    Does Skype Video work? No

    We are all waiting for various drivers and Skype to add their video functionality.

    Skype cam does not work on the TF.

    I have been able to set a DVD up as a share on one of my PCs and access it with File Manager HD

    I guess I will just say that these guys got you covered. Hope this answers your questions and if you have any others, let us know!

    BTW, even an ASUS external optical drive does not work with the TF.

    Angry Cd /dvd external drive works with asus transformer + keyboard

    i recently bought a small portable cd/dvd writer drive from amazon which came with a data / usb cable. Plugged it into the usb port that is incorporated in the keyboard of the transformer t100t. I turned off the power save settings for usb devices. Attached it and it recognised it as a drive, power supplied by usb, no need for external power adapter.

    Downloaded free mac blueray player which allowed me to play a dvd, trial version has no limitations, just watermark dvd menu not film.

    Downloaded free ashampoo cd/dvd burning software and managed to rip a song off a cd with no problems

    no need to download any driver, operating windows 8.1, so good news it can be done.
