    So unfortunately the internal SuperDrive in my girlfriend's mid-2007 Mac Mini is dead. It's cheaper to just grab an external drive than to get the internal drive fixed, so I'm looking for a recommendation of what works and what is good.

    Doubt it'll work with a 2007 Mac Mini. Doesn't it require a high-power USB port?

    HERE is an Amazon-branded one. Doesn't fit the Apple look well, but it functions great and is very reasonably priced.

    Does anyone know if this Amazon-branded one burns DL-DVD's? No answer @
    Amazons page.
