Hi,

I looking for a external dvd writer to pair with my netbook.

Main criteria is that,
it need to be compact,
powered from USB port,
and able to perform Quality Scan.

The rest i am willing to compromise.

Appreciate any recommendation.

Thanks

Hi,

no USB powered external optical drive is USB spec compliant.

That said, it is preferred to stay clear of these.
The only USB spec compliant external slim drives I am aware of, are Sony drives. These have a power supply in the box, and if they are based on NEC/Optiarc design, then they even should be able to do disc scanning.
