I have been looking to upgrade one of my computers with a DVD drive.  I've been looking in the local newspaper flyers (Circuit City, CompUSA, Best Buy), but I never see DVD drives advertised as a separate component.  Any places where I can get one? Also, do these drives hang on the standard IDE interface or is a special controller required.
