External DVD/CD
#15
For burning software, I use the CDRTools, which includes "cdrecord".

I too, want optical disk burners that support M-Disc burning. (Reading is possible by any player.) I don't know if they will last 1,000 years. All I want is to out live me... There are 50GB discs available too.

Their are also DVD-RAM disks. Many multi-function drives will be able to R/W those. And some optical disc drives also can burn 100GB and larger Bluray disc.

As for drives, I use a half height, 5 1/4" drive in an external enclosure. I don't need it to be portable.

Note that our PineBook Pros might not have enough power to run such a device during burning.
