How can I install a CD Burner in my computer?

Episode 934 (59:47)

Tom from San Diego, CA

Tom bought a CD burner with a SATA connection and he can't use it with his IDE connector. Leo says Tom needs an IDE CD burner. The best thing to do, however, would be to just get an external USB CD burner.

Tom also is wondering about needing a driver for it. Leo says he shouldn't need one, but it will come with a lite version of CD burning software like Roxio CD Creator. Leo says physical media is dying, so it may reach a point where they will be hard to find.
