Dear Computer Lady,
Do you still answer hardware such as external disk drive compatibilities with lap tops?
I have read your newsletter for many years, and like it a lot!
I can answer your question.
If your laptop has available USB ports, then pretty much any external disk drive, either a hard drive or an optical (DVD/CD) will work.
All current versions of Windows support USB storage.
Something to consider would be the type of USB. USB 2 is fast, but if your laptop has an available USB 3 port, get an external drive that uses USB 3 and it will be even faster.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
