Excerpt: I had to go to my local computer shop for a new 3.5" drive as mine was making funny noises yesterday. Whilst there I looked at other products as well. My eye lit on the Liteon SOHW-832S USB DVD r/rw drive. (Pun intended) Well DVD thingies are getting far more common these days and I did not have one. I have the usual CD drive and CD R/RW drives already. I wasn't feeling like a rebuild as I am getting lazy. As this was a USB thingy I thought that I might get it.
