External DVD Drive?


New Member
I have a Samsung SE S084 external drive originally purchased for use with a MacBook Air. Can't seem to get my Surface to recognize it; it seems to constantly connect and disconnect, even after rebooting. Any suggestions for a fix, and/or a drive that does work?

Thanks in advance,

I tried out my external drive when I got home, and although I could see the device in Windows Explorer I couldn't launch any of my backup discs with multiple types of files on them. I suspect it has something to do with the lack of native support for executables.
