My CD drive quit working, so I need to order an external drive. I've seen several on Amazon, but I do not know which one is compatible with my computer.

Thanks so much!
:D

Hello AmandaFaye.... Welcome to GeeksToGo,, :D ;) ;)
We will be happy to help but you provided no information on your system to check the type of connections you have.
Does your system have USB connections, firewire or Esata connections?
What is the make and model of your system if it is a name brand system?

6 SUB 2.0 connections. You are pretty open to what you can get. What kind of budget are you looking at?

NewEgg starting at 52.68 shipping included.

TigerDirect starting at 29.99 plus shipping so probably around 40USD total.

My boss was hoping for something around $20-$30. Anything in that range? Will the ones on Amazon not work?

Not sure you didn't provide a link to it for me to take a look at.

Ok there are several on that page. Was there one you were looking at?
They all look to be USB 2.0 so you should be ok with any you choose. Are you looking for a dvd\cd burner or just reader?
