Just a thought, Mo. The port (USB) isn't blocked in anyway is it from
the BIOS? I presume it has worked with Windo$e on the same PC?
Failing that Imy next step would be to check the USB port permissions.
After that I would probably do just what you are thinking of and get
an internal drive. The DVD writers are now fairly cheap.
