    External Slim USB DVD drive??

    I've been searching for over month for this particular unit:

    http://meritline.stores.yahoo.net/ul...cessories.html

    The MP3Car store is sold out as well as every other net dealer. Anyone know if this unit is still being produced? And if so, where to get one?

    TIA

    I can't help you find that product exactly, but you can buy ones like it on that auction site... I bought one there that works great.

    I have one purchased from MP3car.com earlier this year. A search for possible driver updates led me to this site. Looks like they sell direct. I like it. Firewire is even better than USB, no additional power needed.

    Thanks Jimmy and Cali!! I will try the firewire enclosure first in hoping to avoid using up to many USB slots. Plus, it will have better transfer rate.
