    I have a sony dru-710 dvd writer that I have hooked up externally via usb 2.0. I am wondering how I can make it bootable. I am also thinking about just mounting it locally into my dell, and taking my cdr out. You think that would be a better idea ??

    Go into your BIOS. If it's supported, you should be able to set the primary boot device to USB. If it doesn't look like an option, make sure you have the latest BIOS version.

    Giver a go!
