Dell D400, external cd/rw or dvd drive

I have bought a Dell D400, (love it by the way!) What i want to know is can I use any brand of external drive, and do I have to buy the D Bay / media bay, or can I just plug into the USB port?

D400 is not booting up from usb


Is your system set up to boot from USB? What is attached? A flash drive or an external cd/dvd drive? If a flash drive, was the software on it created to be bootable? Is this the first time you are trying to boot from USB? Please provide more details.

Will CD-RW drive play video or do I need CD-Rom? (Gulp) Cost ?


MAIN QUESTION.
NO sorry to tell you you need at least a dvd drive to play dvd's DVD - R/RW to burn onto a DVD disc but you are lucky, external DVD drives are relatively cheap now days, just look around online or at walmart my estimate is that you wont pay more than 200 for a dvd-rw drive (external) as far as the value of the computer you are getting i would say currently $200 to a max of $400 value if you were going to sell it and thats asking high. if you didnt pay more tha that then you are ok IF you did i would be asking for your money back as you can go to walmart and get 3 times the computer for 300 bucks. if you need to know more just shoot me an e-mail at tonyw514@yahoo.com just let me know in the subject that your real.

My dell d610 laptop has dvd/cd rw i want to know if this means i have dvd rw too if not what should i buy so that i will have dvd rw hopefully it will be something i just plug in this is my first computer...


Your built in CD Drive is a DVD player and regular CDR - CDRW burner, this means you cannot burn DVD's. To burn DVD's I would recommend you purchase an external DVD burner, here are some links to ones that are compatable to your computer.

Asus - Good Reviews

LITEON - Also has good Reviews
