  • What DVD-ROM should i get?

    Can anyone please recommend me a cheap and good firewire (Or USB2) external slim DVD-ROM.

    Have been looking around for ages and found some, but then I didnít find a shop that was shipping overseas (I am in Australia). And the one that they are selling over here is like 200 buks and thatís WAY over my DVD-ROM budget.

    Thanks very much for any help.

    EDIT : Doesnt really have to be a external

        These are just a few links i got off pricewatch. If you want to buy it from a store, I know compusa has it in stock for 60 - 70 bucks.

              saw one in the compusa(prolly not in australia) yesterday, 10$ after rebates.

              it wasnt any of the things you wanted, just a general DVD rom. but damn there getting cheap. soon its gonna be free with rebates.

                I'll probably be getting his carputer hardware on Thursday to build it for him! Then i'll be able to see whether i'll need to get one of them myself

                  jeez...here in australia, DVD burners are only 180 dollars now...thats like 100 US.
                  Pretty soon you will be able to buy a slot loading, slimline, DVD burner combo drive!

                  i might wait for that. Could have a dvd burner in ya car!
