Hello. I'd like to share a bit of my free time for contributing to this project. I found at least 20-25 game (IBM PC) discs sold locally that I could add to the database. Need guidance just with selecting the best external (or internal, if sata to usb enclosures work just as well) dvd/cd drive for this purpose. It's possible I will contribute more than this, as I have  a decent amount of free time in the near future. Can give more info/proof of competence if requested. Thanks.

From the drives on the wiki page, I could only find this model to buy right away and without hassle, for around ~$100, which I am willing to spend.
PX-712SA
good deal ?

Feel free to ask question on the forum, or via Discord about how to get started preserving games with Redump:

PX-760A (+30), PX-W4824TA (+98), GSA-H42L (+667), GDR-8164B (+102), SH-D162D (+6), SOHD-167T (+12)

$100 is a little bit too much if you ask me, but in the end its of course up to you how much money you are willing to spend for something smile

If you hop on the discord we can help you find a deal. 30$ is a good deal, 40$ isn't uncommon, 50-60$ is common for compatible plextors.

Found the invite link only to realise I was already on that server. I didn't know it was connected to redump.
I'm there. please advise me towards a better deal if any smile
