Nope, it looks like it is read-only and it's kind of bogus how Newegg "hides" the DVD-ROM in the specs.

Amazon is more forthright.

I need one for my wife's ultrabook (no optical drive). She still has a collection of DVD movies that she enjoys watching but she has been unable to since we upgraded her system.

external burner for 15$? If you can find one, send me a link. I would be eternally grateful. The cheapest that I have seen them is around the $30 mark.

So, the cost of an internal drive + the cost of a USB/SATA adapter is under 15? Or are u you basically saying that I use the stuff lying around my house to cobble something together for that cost.

I probably could, but this is my wife's system...it has to be "pretty" and portable.

this went FP back in Dec, folks on-the-go may need a DVD movie or have a piece of software to load. Sure you can lug a power brick and an internal burner though the airport if you choose shake head

you should mention that there is shipping costs as well. It shows 2.99 for me. Not a huge amount but makes it not worth it for me.
