    I'm looking for a good value external dvd-r burner.

    Would it be better to connect via usb2 or firewire?

    Any recommendations.

    Well it's not cheap, but this one looks OK.

    Has both firewire & USB 2 so you can tell us which is the better option should you buy it :)

    Not too many external DVD writers available.

    Thanks for the replies.

    If I connect an external writer directly to my USB2 will this power itself from the laptop or do I need an additional power cable?

    I assume a external IDE model with the external case would need powering seperately.

    99% sure you'll need an external power source too.
