Optical Drive Help

Looking at getting a decent optical drive for my netbook. Have bought a LG one which does not work with DVD. I would like it to cost under £60, powered by USB, loads DVD and writes files on to CD's.

You should look for a ASUS SDRW-08D1S-U EXTERNAL DVD RE-WRITER, 8X, BLACK Seen one on fleabay for under the price you are looking for one. Other than that purchase a pioneer internal dvd rewriter Pioneer Sata 22x DVD writer Black DVR-S18LBK and purchase a seperate 5.25 enclosure and build a external unit yourself.
Sorry ....Just seen " Powered by usb" ....The ASUS SDRW-08D1S-U EXTERNAL DVD RE-WRITER will work by the usb powered thou.
[FONT=Verdana]Have you checked out the ones listed on Amazon UK?

Here's a couple to consider but would also recommend doing a search via the online shopping search engines as well.

Slimline USB External Dual Layer DVD+-RW in black drive: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo - £39.99p + £3.95p Shipping

MY-Link USB External Slim USB External DVD-RW CD-RW DVD: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo - £38.99p + FREE SHIPPING

Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:
Thanks both for the links. Great help. :D
which lg did you have that did not work. ?

Thing is with laptop /slimline drives are they have poor / performace / firmware support /media support/

However for netbook use and powered by usb you have little choice so maybe email sellers above and ask what model of drive is installed into the plastic case they are selling...Def avoid Matshita/ Matsushita /
