The LG 14X Blu-ray BDXL Internal Rewriter offers a great solution for precious and important data backup with support of M-Disc, a breakthrough media that keeps burned data much longer than conventional recordable disc based on organic dye. It features 12X BD ROM reading and Max 16X DVD RW writing speed, allowing you to enjoy greater time management.
Ultra HD Blu-ray playback

The Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX) feature is a requirement for the CPU and motherboard firmware to play DRM (digital rights management) protected content on Ultra HD Blu-ray movie discs on a Windows platform.


Intel SGX has been removed from Intel 11th generation and newer CPUs, and support for SGX may be removed on new versions of Intel drivers or utility programs such as Intel SGX and Intel Management Engine drivers and firmware in the future. Such changes could cause these platforms to lose support for Ultra HD Blu-ray movie disc playback.
