You might find some cheap ones you'll like.

I did not read the rules. Also no one should be like me, I was wrong.

A little more than you want to spend, but I'm really pleased with my Mad Dog. Firewire too, which is how you really should go:

Apple supports almost all external burners, as long as you have ilife '06
As fyrman22 pointed out, If you don't have '06, you can use patchburn. http://www.patchburn.de/
it supports most burners, but I think that excludes Samsung drives.

patchburn should do it for you if ilife doesnt like everyoen else has said so far.

also justin, check out the forum rules (in the anything goes forum) and it has some signature rules you might need to check out before the mods get on you about it being too big
