Hi all

I've finally given up on my internal DVD burner (PPC G5) Mat****a. Could anyone recommend a decent external DVD writer. I'm quite a novice so any pointer would be greatly apprieciated.

Kind regards
QUOTE Thanks

Why not replace the internal burner?

There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.

I did think of that until i saw how much it costs. My Mac is 5/6 years old, i'm not a heavy user and don't wanna take the risk of putting in a new Superdrive and it breaking in the near future for some other reason. Unless you know of a place i can get a cheap one?
