Yeah, so my 12" PowerBook's SuperDrive just failed (*all* media goes in, drive makes really scary stress sounds, spits media out), so rather than try to fix or go to Apple and have them tell me it'll cost $7 zillion dollars to replace it (out of warranty, no Applecare, etc, etc), I'll just buy an external one. Now in my brief research, Firewire seems to be the way to go, as I'll be able to boot from the device (should I need to reinstall Tiger) and I can get iTunes and iEverythingElse to use it via third party prrgrams (patchburn). So what's my best bet? I'd like to get one of those new DL drives (wave of the future~!) and not spend more than $150. Any and all advice is appreciated. Thanks. EDITitional info: Let's say my internal hard drive crashes. Would my external DVD drive still be able to boot my PB even though its latest driver would have been lost in the crash?
