    how about buying an enclosure and stick an internal burner inside? provided the cables are right.

    I have a good Samsung one. Just got it at a local PC store

    try Ebuyer.com before anywhere else

    not really sure how to do that

    in a nutshell, a 5.25" dvd drive enclosure is a portable storage dvd drive case which holds an internal 5.25" dvd drive, the whole thing will look like an external drive, and externally connected via USB 2.0 or IEEE 1394a (firewire).

    i got my dual layer dvd burner for about £15 (pioneer 115-d, but i'm sure there are newer models now) from play.com. i used it inside my computer to replace an old superdrive.

    if you want an external with this, u can get a dvd enclosure to hold it in
    (u only needs basic computer diy knowledge to put one in).
    the enclosure already has its own cables (depending on model, either usb2, firewire or both) & power cable.
    – a few un-screws
    – open the case and place the dvd drive inside
    – attaching your dvd drive to the right connections that comes from the bottom of the case (u should have instructions with your case)
    – power up and it shd be plug-and-play
