I want to know the general Ubuntu user opinion on which external DVD burner is good to buy. I have an AESUS EEE PC and it has Windows 7 in dual boot with Ubuntu. The main things are that I need to be able to boot from it and if it only used 1 USB port it would be very good.

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place/forum...

I have a sony DW-Q58A slim DVD writer which works well in one of these enclosures, it has second usb cable for power which is advisable when writing to disc...

The problem is not so much the drive but the chipset in the enclosure.
There are threads here where people have not been able to get some USB enclosures to work.
