Any USB connected external CD/DVD burner will work. There is nothing special for Windows 7.
Here is an example from www.newegg.com (where I buy most of my PC parts). Newegg.com - LITE-ON 8X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 8X DVD-ROM 24X CD-R 24X CD-RW 24X CD-ROM USB Black External Slim DVD/CD Writer Model Esau208-96 LightScribe Support - External CD / DVD Drives
