    I am considering getting an external DVD re-writer as I am computer illiterate when it comes to adding hardware. Can this be done via a USB cable etc. :confused:

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Ta - Drew.

    Yes, most external drives connect thru USB, although you can also get Firewire connected drives as well - or both. Firewire would require you to have Firewire ports on your computer. For USB you would want your ports to be USB2.0 complaint.
