The DVD burner "SuperDrive" was nothing more than the original Pioneer DVR-A04, now that the DVR-A06 is out they maybe starting to use it. The Pioneer drive can be bought at just about any online computer store, I prefer newegg.com. The new DVR-A06 is the newest drive and it supports writing DVD-R/W, DVD+R/W, and all cds.
What do you mean by slim as possible? All internal dvd or cd burners must fit into a 5 1/4" bay. As for the brand, that is up to you, I prefer the sony dual format drives, but Pioneer and a host of other companies are making dual format drives for about the same cost. I would not spend much more than $235 for the drive. I definitely recommend you getting the dual format drives, they write DVD-R and DVD+R, that way you have your bases covered for compatabilty issues(ie. set-top DVD players) and you don't have to worry about which format becomes more of the standard.
That is what I was thinking. Here is the only one that I liked that I could find, supposedly Pioneer released on after the COMDEX show in 2002 but couldn't find it. The model is the Toshiba DR-R6012. I don't know anything about this store, just a good display of the product.
I agree, especially since he said it was for a case mod. I haven't seen to many external drives used for case mods, but if you could mold and blend an external enclosure to a caseit may look pretty cool.
yea this is going to be attached to the back side of an lcd monitor, i cant say much about waht the mod is becase i am working on it for a company but i want it to be as low costing but good aspossable becase i need to buy the parts first off and if it all works then they pay me for them.i just need it to be as slim as possable and if there is one out there that is the best for the price and can do everything then that would be what i am looking for
