Optical Drive Features--Part 5 of 5
Some people own a PC with a DVD-ROM drive but use a notebook that only supports CD-ROM media--thus limiting their ability to use DVD-ROM discs while traveling. One way around this problem is to purchase a portable DVD-ROM drive for use with your notebook.

For example, Port-Noteworthy at http://www.port.com offers a DVD/CD-ROM PC Card drive for $399. Similarly, Addonics at http://www.addonics.com sells its FireWire-PC Card interfacing PocketDVD drive for $423.
