    Any external drive for Mac should work. You might also want to consider upgrading the internal drive. You should be able to find a compatible SuperDrive on eBay easily enough.

    My vote goes to Pioneer brand, the 115D or 116D (215/216 if SATA). You've specified USB, which means you can go the 'economical' route and use a bare drive (no enclosure) with a USB adaptor kit.
