Choosing an external usb CD/DVD R/W drive.

  1. Sep 21, 2013 #1
    Hi
    I am looking for an external USB CD/DVD R/W drive for my laptop as it does not come with one. I look on Amazon and they only say DVD drive. How do I know whether it can R/W both DVD and CD? Here is the link for Amazon:https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_7?url=search-alias%3Dcomputers&field-keywords=usb%20dvd%20drive&sprefix=usb+dvd%2Caps%2C401.

    Please give me a suggestion which one to buy from the list. I don't need the best or what, I just need one that work with Windows XP, 7 and 8.

    Thanks

    includes the information:

    Hope this will work.
