    Anyone else notifications not working for the Email app? It's turned on. Facebook notifications work but not email.

    Also anyone know a USB DVD/Blu-Ray drive that works off the single USB port on the SP3?

    I purchased a Samsung SE-218CB/RSBS external usb DVD burner on EBAY, it works great with a single usb cable, and it has AV mode so you can use it with Android, or plug it into some TV's and play multimedia dvd's. Came with Nero Express, works like a charm....

    was this actually tested in a Surface Pro 3?

    I ask because the Surface PRO 3 USB does not have enough amperage to power an external DVD (even a reader). Your only chance to get one to work is if the DVD drive has its own power supply.

    Do not waste your money on this one. It will not work in a Surface Pro 3.

    Frank, I've been able to used that same Samsung SE-218CB/RSBS with my SP3, but only with the power cable plugged in. It won't work on battery power. I used it to install a Fujitsu portable scanner I occasionally use at work.

    I haven't tried that. Next time I use it I will give that a shot and let you know.

    Please, let me know if it works. It would be the first one that I know of it.

    Looks like this has already been confirmed. Here is another members solution:

    Thanks ipaq, good idea using the charging block.

    Indeed. It would be wonderful if we knew the exact cable that he used.
