Default DVD drives that are compatible with Mini 9 or Vostro a90 running OS X - 05-23-2009, 09:28 PM

I'd like to get an external DVD driver that will work to both install OS X 10.5.6 and use after OS X is installed.

Thanks in advance for any help, suggests and advice.

XBOX 360 HDDVD drive works great, and it is cheap, as the HD format is no longer being produced. OS X install went well, and it works with the finished install, it's just not what you would call "slim" or "ultra-portable."
