      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.


      Products listed as ‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      'Out of Print'

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    TBA - To Be Announced...

    I have ordered this DVD - only after hearing from our fellow flipkarters say about this product.


    I received a 8X DVD/ CD Writer (Model No. dvd550s) as opposed to the one on display at flipkart.com which is actually a 8X DVD/CD Writer (Model No. dvd557s) inclusive of Lightscribe tech. - A bit *disappointed* about this whole product switch.

    I have raised a Ticket on Sunday, Dec. 2nd 2012, 01:04 Hrs. and will wait for a response.


    Until I see this through positively, I will hold...

    If u need an External DVD writer then this is the one.

    I have been using this product over a week and I would say that if you are looking for an external DVD writer then you should buy this product.
    The things that I liked about the product are-
    1. The appearance is quite good.
    2. The functionality is good.
    3. 2 usb for laptops not providing enough power.
    4. Can be used to create double layer DVD's.
    5. It does not require any power adapter and its light weight makes it portable.
    P.S.- A good product available at cheap price, must buy if looking f...

    Good product; Lightscribe is neat!!!

    Just got the device and tried it out only once so far. The writing was reasonably fast. The device comes clubbed with Nero, which is good. Lightscribe also works reasonably well, though it's very slow. A label with an image on it will take about 25-30 minutes at maximum contrast. If you can afford yourself the luxury of waiting that long for a label, then it's a pretty neat feature to have at a small extra cost. Having said that, I must say the label printing does look a wee bit hazy... not a...
