That's a DVD-RAM drive.  Technically different from a DVD-R drive (like the
SuperDrive).  They're incompatible formats and the disc that you record with
DVD-RAM can not be played on a standard DVD-ROM drive or consumer DVD
player.  Also, I think the media is more expensive, since it's built on
magneto optical technology.

As far as I know, the only stand-alone DVD-R drives are from Pioneer:

Their older model (DVR-S201) is an external SCSI and costs $5400.  The newer
one (DVR-A03) is internal, IDE and $995.  Unfortunately the cheaper drive is
only available bundle with a Mac - Pioneer expects to start selling it
separately in a month.
