I went for one of these from Amazon UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B001GRNS32

It cost GBP 35.94 including p & p and arrived the day after I ordered it. It comes with a power supply and USB lead plus USB power lead. I found it would run simply from the USB lead; using the extra USB power lead might be necessary for CD burning and may be kinder to the mini for normal use away from mains power. It worked "out of the box" on my mini 9, although it does have an 8 cm CD with drivers included. It has been fine for loading Windows components and MS Office, and I played an audio CD with it just to see if I could. It will burn CDs but only read DVDs.

That looks pretty good for a great price- free shipping too! Too bad it says it requires Windows. Well, too bad for me anywat.
