External DVD Drive for $15, Writer for $20:
DVDs are being phased out as personal storage media, since hard drives, USB flash drives, and online "cloud" storage are easier and cheaper than burning discs.
Many tablets and laptop computers do not even have built-in CD/DVD drives.
If your tablet or laptop has a USB port, and you want a CD/DVD drive, these deals are available:
Burning DVDs are still cheap, at a cost of about 3¢ to 4¢ per GB, however time consuming.
Burning a single disc can take 15 minutes at 8X (external DVD writer speed).
Also, DVDs written by consumer drives have a limited shelf life of about 4-5 years, depending on the quality of the discs used.
