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?

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.

I want to upgrade from cd rw to dvd/cd rw


If you are looking to replace the internal drive, then as long as you purchase a drive with the same interface it will work. If you are looking for a USB external drive then any one will work.

The only thing Dell was correct with is it should have +/- signs.

DVD/CD - RW Combo Drives


Any brand should work as long as you have the correct drivers.

Either IDE (internal) or USB (external) will work.
