I'm on my second Apple laptop, and this is the second time the CD drive has failed. When the first one crapped out, it was just the CD drive - it stopped reading CDs, but it still read DVDs. The same thing happened to my MacBook - it started out with CDs, but now it's moved onto DVDs. I'm obviously not buying a new laptop, and from what I've read, it might not be something that can be repaired. I guess I could look into it, but it'll probably be cheaper to just buy an external drive. So, can any Mac users recommend an external CD/DVD drive? Is there a specific brand I'd have to buy? Can I use an external drive with a Mac (as far as compatibility issues)?
