I have this drive:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...106-823&depa=1

I haven't had any problems with it, and it burns CDs very quickly. If you'll notice, the price is good too. It burns CDs from my computer in approximately 3 minutes.

man, go w/a good name brand like sony or phillips and make sure it has a good built in buffer. I have made the mistake of getting ones that were offbrand and regretted it later. Stay away from Empress.

Why not go straight for a DVD drive? You can do DVDs and CDs.

Yes, it will work fine. Just be sure you have a cable for it.

If you buy it OEM on newegg, it won't come with cables. OEM means that it comes with just the product, no extra software, cables, etc. You can buy another IDE cable for literally $2.
