    Switching to CD-RW

    Im going to go switch my moms business from zip disks to cd-rw. I already got her 2 48x cd-rw drives, each 10$ after rebates, but now i have to get something for her labtop... She got that cheap so no cd-rw drive there... So whats the best bet on that...she has a dell inspiron 2500
    i can either go

    1.) Buy a usb2.0 card and an external cd-rw drive (lots of money)

    2.) Buy a USB2.0 card or firewire card and get a Drive enclosure and an internal cd-rw drive (lots of money)

    3.) Go through dell and get an upgrade there (dont knw about this one)

    can u guys help me??

    You could get another cheap CD-RW drive and buy an external enclosure that supports both FireWire and USB 2.0. That's what I did. Here's the enclosure I got:

    Less expensive when paired with a cheap CD-RW drive, I think.

    Not really. If you can get an external that cheap, then might as well get it.
