DVD drive for PowerBook G3

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a PowerBook G3, the 233 MHz model with a 20x CD-ROM drive standard. Where can I get a DVD drive for it so I can watch DVD movies? Would it be worth it to get one for the expansion bay, or is an external drive good enough and/or cheaper?

OWC Firewire SuperDrives (DVD-R/RW + CDR/CDRW) -
Site sponsor Other World Computing sent a note about their Superdrive based Firewire drives:


OWC Mercury Pro FireWire DVD-RW/CD-RW Storage Solutions
$489 package is complete with FireWire cable, Power, and CDR/CDRW media, but no software. More than our competitors offer whereas they make you buy the FireWire cable separately...
The $549 model includes 1 DVD-R, 1 CD-R, 1 CD-RW medias; FireWire and Power Cable, AND the FULL Retail version of Roxio Toast Titanium 5.
I think these are the best deals available too.

Thanks, but I'm looking for a lower cost sort of thing. I don't need to burn CDs and I don't need to burn DVDs, I'd just like to be able to play DVD movies on my computer. I saw something about a VST expansion bay DVD drive. Does anyone know more about these, like where I could get one or how much it would cost?
