    I'm looking to get an external CD burner. Maybe a DVD burner if the price is right. What are the compatibility of these drives? Are they plug play or do some require a certain OS to opertate?

    Some PC ones can be made to work with Macs using software called PatchBurn. I've used two drives that have been enabled this way, though it doesn't work for all.
