Which External DVD Drive to Install Operation System on iBook G4?

I need to find an external DVD drive that is compatible with my iBook G4, and will allow me to install Tiger.

I just bought a Sony Optiarc 8x External Slim USB external DVD drive, but my iBook will not recognize Tiger so I can select the installation disk to install Tiger the internal HD in my iBook.

The internal disk drive on my iBook is jammed, so that is why I need to get an external drive to install a system.

TigerDirect told me that there are no external DVD drives that will allow me to install a system on my iBook. So no help there ...

Any suggestions on which DVD drives would work for me?

- Samsung Galaxy Note 3, 3GB RAM, JellyBean 4.3
- iBook G4, 1GHz, 1.25GB RAM, Tiger 10.4.11
- Archos 80 G9 Turbo 250GB, Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
- Mac Pro, 2.93 GHz, 8GB RAM, Snow Leopard 10.6.8
