    DVD question


    I'm trying to install OpenSuse in an old pc. It has CD, but no DVD. OpenSuse is on DVD.

    If I want to stuff a DVD inside it, will any of the low cost ones on Ebay work OK?

    Anything I need to watch out for?

    I've only used e-Bay a couple of times, but I would try to look at the sellers reputation rating.
    Actually, what I would do is look for a decent one off of Newegg. There are some pretty good deals on there for DVD drives.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Given the low price of decent DVD recorders these days, why mess with eBay? Major brands go from $25-50 USD with free shipping from Buy.com, as an example.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    I would buy a blank CD from my local market before I visited eBay!

    Just to throw out there, you can download an installable OpenSuse CD, not just DVD.
