External DVD/CD
#13
I usually prefer drives like https://www.newegg.com/pioneer-model-bdr...2W0AKH0298 because they are easier to open if for whatever reason they don't react to the eject button - the Pioneer models have a latch on the bottom that is easy enough to pull using Mark I finger, no need for any pins, paper clips, or anything else. Also not sure whether LITE-ON can write M-DISC disks, but I know Pioneer BDR-XD07UHD can, and those M-DISCs are supposed to last for a very long time as they are specifically developed for e-archival purposes, though something called "glass DVD" disks apparently are even more durable, though I haven't seen those. I've been using Pioneer BDR-XD05B and I'm pretty happy with it.

As to burning software - I prefer K3B, which is just like X-CD-Roast is just a front-end for growisofs and Co, except it's based on Qt and is part of KDE SC, whereas X-CD-Roast is a GTK-based app.
