Hey Mike -

On a whim I popped in a disc today and bam, it opened it in LibreDrive mode and just worked! I was asking about this drive about a month ago and it was indicated that as a hp variant it may not work correctly but here we are and it is now working perfectly.

Thanks for all the hard work, it blows me away just how much value I got for my $50 when I paid for this way back. Amazing customer support!
