could someone please point me in the right direction to buy one of the above? what do i need to look for (eg speed,make,duality etc) and would i be able to fit this myself (with help from here if possible)
Supports + and - formats As high a speed as possible on CDs (some drives offer very poor CD read / writer speeds)
Most drives are very easy to fit - you can get assistance here anyway. Just read the installation instructions carefully, and make sure you set the jumpers correctly - most instruction booklets will give you a diagram and explain them, so just follow their instructions. If you already have CD-writing software, you may be able to buy OEM, but otherwise it might be worth checking what various drives ship with.
