To avoid overuse on a replaced superdrive that Apple installed on my desktop I need suggestions for a good moderate priced drive to continue heavy downloading into music library that also will play BD,DVD and CD.
So many on market, would value suggestions in the under $100 range.
Thanks:rolleyes:

Do you have a USB port?

External USB optical drives are commodity items:

Not in particular. I'd stick to names of actual manufacturers of optical drives if the price premium isn't too much - and this one is like $30 - no sweat!
