My internal cd drive for my macbook has not been working for a while now. Instead of me replacing it I was looking in to getting an external cd drive. However I have no idea of any that are compatible and work great with my macbook. If someone could give me a few suggestions that would be great.

Don't buy the MacBook Air Superdrive. Just about any external USB optical drive will work. I bought an inexpensive Samsung drive for $29.00 and it works fine. Even does double layer DVD media. Check with Amazon and NewEgg for prices and models.
