I recently purchased the DRW-1612BL from newegg.com and the unit arrived w/out any software.  I've got it installed and recognized by windows, and while I haven't tested it with any of my apps for my old DVD-RW I'm presuming it will be recognized by them.  I'm used to getting some type of burning suite when I purchase burner drives.  Is this not the case when you purchase Asus products through newegg?  I went to the downloads page for my specific unit and only found a lightscribe compatibility patch that will make the lightscribe features of this unit work with various burning suites.

Well, what I was asking was more along the lines of - is this unit supposed to come with software?  My previous purchases of optical storage devices have all come with programs, this is the first that did not.

In answer to your query regarding the supply of software with the DRW-1612BL.  I purchased one today, in the UK,  complete with Nero Software, and a nice zipped CD case complete with two Verbatim LightScribe CD's and a set of mounting screws.  The contents were as advertised on the Asus web site.  Sorry to say, but looks like you have been well and truly stiched up.  Incidentally the Nero CD supplied did not contain Nero Vision Express but this can be downloaded via the nero web site albeit it without the help files which you can download seperately.

ps.  OEM drives don't usually contain any software or cables which you only usaually get with RETAIL versions as per the DRW-1612BL


Kind regards

Ditto.  Got the same software and case n lightscribe cd's. As mention in previous post, if's an OEM, you usually get nothing more that the unit and a nice electro-static bag! The difference betwen the box set and the OEM was only about 7$, so I decided to splurge. Lol

No software with the one I bought either. Maybe because the unit is sold as OEM no software comes with it as it is for replacement only with software already installed? Looking into software for units sold as retail. Good luck in your hunt for drivers too. Right now all mine will do is read CDs only.
