[quote=“smartass”]Is there such a thing? Would someone have one I could borrow? I have a lot of crap on my computer I would like to back up so I can gain some space back… I just can’t bring myself to delete anything.
How easy to set up are internal dvd-burners? I’ve been meaning to buy one for a long time now, but like I’ve said before, it’s not all that important and there’s other things to save for now… like going to Nationals.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.[/quote]
Yes there is such a thing. You can turn any internal DVD writer into an external by mounting it in one of those little USB2.0 or Firewire enclosures. As far as setting them up goes, it isn’t any different that installing a CD or HD drive. Screw it in, set the jumper, plug the cables in and you’re done like dinner. I paid about $100CAD for my burner at xmas time, so they’re pretty cheap. I imagine some are floating around the $60CAD range.
