    I'm looking to buy an external DVDR drive for a G4 powerbook. Looking to spend less than $120 preferably. It is for basic home use, so it does not need to be top of the line. Dual layer would be a plus.

    What would you guys suggest?

    Also I've noticed 90% of these drives only list windows OS, does it matter for something like this? Ive used USB based hardware before that only listed windows and it worked fine.

    No DVDR, only DVD read/CDRW combo. :/

    LaCie makes a good one, and they sell it at apple stores.

    failing that.... http://guide.apple.com is your friend.
