I need HELP;

I have a recent MacBook Air M1 with Big Sur and USB-C.
I need an external CD/DVD reader/writer.
Apple’s Superdrive is NOT compatible with this Macbook per my attempts and per Apple Genius Tech service.

Some other CD/DVD reader/writers are NOT compatible with the Mac OS or M1 chip - not just a USB-C issue.

Could anyone recommend a CD/DVD reader/writer that can be used with my MacBook Air 2020 with BigSur M1 USB-C ???
Something I could use straight out of the Box without too much fuss.

I am sure I am not the only one with this issue. Many at Apple were unaware their Superdrive was not compatible…???!!!

Many thanks to you,
