External cdr-rw drives for windows 95

Just went to Best Buy.com and did a search on drives and couldn't find an external drive for Windows 95.They have one model that didn't list the requirements.

Make sure that it is a parallel interface. I do not think 95 supports usb or firewire. You might want to check on ebay for a used one, because I doubt that many if any companies are making a parallel model any more due to the bandwidth constriction of it. Of course that is specaluation on my part abort the new models.

parallel and SCSI are your only real choices with Win 95.

I would highly recommend the SCSI, but you need a card, a cable, and the drive. It will be pricey, may be cheaper to upgrade your OS and go with USB.
