Re: DVD

Well, a Surface Pro 4 runs Windows 10 and it has a USB 3 port. So I'd say it can use any USB DVD-device for data. If you have heard otherwise, ask the ones who told you why they think it doesn't work.

If you take your laptop with you to the shop, I'm sure they will be able to show you it works. That's normal pre-sales service.

I used the 25 dollar USB DVDRW you get from Walmart. With tax figure 30 bucks.
