It works on my Mac Studio, so I'd say yes. It's labelling as being Mac-compatible

Some reviews say it's not compatible with Monterey.

Playback of 4k BDs on recent CPUs has been killed:

https://www.cyberlink.com/support...o?id=26690

I suppose you could still rip the discs but what a PITA
Indeed, what a PITA. DRM has foiled my LEGIT playback concerns for years. Cablecard usage on my HdHomeRun was a headache for many years, but this one takes the cake.

With this level of difficulty, the roar of the high seas beckons me...

we have TONS of 8mm as well. all of my childhood vids were on 8mm.
the Sony camcorder still works. it's about the size of a desktop computer that you would have to hold on your shoulder.

and we have reels from the 1950s we were given by family members who are long since deceased, we've been meaning to have converted

Recently bought a Wolverine 8mm and Super 8 Film Reel Converter to convert some of my 80's movies, paid almost $300. To convert VHS tapes to digital is much easier and cheaper. Checked and I can still read my oldest CD's from 1996 and 1997.

It uses USB connection. As long as the chromebook has a USB port, it will work. The USB-C port will need a adapter.

Not sure about that. I have an old external CD R/W with USB. Plugged it into my chromebook and... nuthin' :-(

Oh that's awesome!
I believe our reels are 16mm.
Can we buy a 16mm to digital converter to do the conversions ourselves?
Apologize for the ignorance, don't know much about this stuff

Quote from BlueVoyager308 :
Yes. Instead buying this item (which has too many imposed restrictions), buy a USB to SATA adapter that comes with a power brick/supply, because you need a power brick to run the DVD burner. Turn your internal DVD burner from years ago to external DVD burner. Those old DVD burners don't have so many restrictions. They cost nothing. I saved 5 or 6 of them from discarded PC's.
I do that but no power brick is required.

To convert 16mm film I guess you will need to send to professional service, its too old.
Regarding my 1996 CD's, the CD burners at the time were about $1,000. They would charge about $100 to burn a single CD!

So I bought the latest BTS album Proof and have no way to play the CD because I don't have a CD player and I thought my car has but nope. Will this work?

Not necessarily, they degrade over time, you'd essentially would have to keep backups of backups and store them in a super clean environment. To top it off are easily lost in natural disasters.

Have fun recording hundreds of dvds at 8X. Quadruple 24x is the way to go.
What is quadruple?
