Getting ready to buy a new Mini and need to get a usb super drive to burn CD's and DVD's.

Any suggestions besides Apple USB Super Drive?

thanks

I have a very old Lacie (sorry I do not even know the model) I got at a flea market in France for 5 euros, it works very well...

you can pick up fairly cheap usb powered drives these days.

I have an old Freecom external mains powered drive which is pretty huge but has worked well. I hardly, (never), use it these days.
Its just sat in a cupboard now as it takes up too much room on my desk to leave it connected all the time.
