I use a a dvd writer quite often, mine came OEM from ebuyer, no software. It's a matshita drive, don't laugh, it's quite good and I have had it for about a year.
Look for a duel format drive, and a retail box one.The retail box should have the writing software. This will give you the option to burn in + and - format. The - format works the best with most dvd players.
This looks quite good for £80
By the way has your firewire card got the editing software?
