new laptop doesn’t have an internal cd dvd drive, anyone recommend any external ones ? Cheers
Do people still use CD/DVDs? There is a reason most laptops don’t come with a drive for them anymore.
I've got a Samsung one.
Don't get a Samsung one.
bought a new pc few month ago (i9-9000k+rtx 2700)
goes to put windows cd in , duhhhhhhhhhhh got that tool that puts windows install on usb stick
bought a liteon from ghi(£30) to burn audio cd's
Bought this last year to rip some CDs to iTunes - does the trick... https://smile.amazon.co.uk/UEB-Exte...d=1555499900&s=gateway&sr=8-31&srs=7267296031
Again why? You've got plenty of streaming options that are good quality, but even if they aren't good enough for you, you can use far greater quality audio like FLAC on a usb memory stick which most media players in the last few years support.
I can honestly say I have no owned a DVD player since I sold my xbox 360 about 6 years ago, and I haven't had audio CDs for probably closer to 10 years when aux inputs became common place.
I'm with you on that, but there's always that once where you need one.
For example, I need one now to burn a Sat Nav update disc for my car. Needs to be a certain brand burner and disc to work anarl, ffs.
I'm just waiting for someone asking if they can get a vinyl drive to plug into their laptop
One in argos
It’s to transfer music from a cd so I can play via iTunes/ phone etc. Some of the cds are not available on streaming services
Ah fair enough, I don’t have that wide a range of a taste in music
