My ten year old computer needs a new CD drive. Those interested in all the sad details can read my thread, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1180017, but the short version is that my attempts to install Ubuntu have killed off two CD-ROM. I want something that my BIOS will recognize so that I can try Lubuntu Maverick. I know that I need ATA and not SATA. Is there anything else I need to know? I don't want to get something that will be incompatible was my hardware. Are there any brands that people recommend or advise against?
