please sujest an external USB DVD drive for CentOS 4.2

it appears that my builtin CDRW/DVD combo may not work on the DVD side with linux as it may not be fully MMC-3 compliant and won't work with all the functions necessary for DVD under non-Windows systems.

so as a results i am looking for an affordable (under $150USD) external DVD player or DVDR+- that will be compatable with CentOS 4.2

many thanks.
