Compatible external USB DVD-RW drive

Hey everyone,

I'm in the market for an external USB DVD-RW drive, and I want to know what devices are compatible with Edgy. Either from personal experience or a list of supported drives would be great.

I do not have any new ones. The two I have used are couple years old. Never had a problem with them. I would all should work with no issues other than maybe those new HD DVD drives. If no other scsi, sata, usb, firewire, or a few other optical drives are connected then the first one will be /dev/scd0
