I think I got my answers ...
1). Is this DVD external HP drive model DCD1270E powered by a USB connection or does it have its own power supply?
It has a plug in the wall power supply.
2). Does this product work with Windows 7 64-bit OS?
Yes, this external USB DVD writer is compatible with 64-bit Windows 7 operating systems.
3). I am returning my 1170E, Reason Nero does not support windows 7. does the 1270E software ?
This DVD burner also includes the Nero Essential Software Suite, which is designed to be used with Windows 2000, XP, and Vista. You may need to download an updated version of Nero from the manufacturer's website for Windows 7.
4). Can this external burner be used with a Dell Laptop?
The HP 24x External USB 2.0 Double-Layer DVD±RW/CD-RW Drive connects to a USB port on your PC and should be compatible with a Dell PC.
However, please remember that since HP does not test or support third-party products we cannot guarantee compatibility
5). Does it come with any software?
Yes, this external USB DVD writer comes with DVD writing software included in the box.
6). Can this drive install software onto my laptop?
I'm trying to find a cd,dvd drive for my laptop, because mine doesn't come with one built in.
This drive can be external with a USB connection, it should be fine.
7). Is this and External DVD+R-RW/CD+R-RW drive as the ad says or is it an internal drive? The specifications list it as being internat, yet the ad has it listed as external. If it is internal it is probably too replace my existing drive that will only show DVD's, but write CD's.
The HP 24x External USB 2.0 Double-Layer DVD±RW/CD-RW Drive is an external drive that connects through a USB port. I apologize for the misinformation listed on the website.

Funny, I am running Windows 7 Home Premium and Ultimate, and have Nero 10 installed on both computers. Works fine. So much for Nero not being compatible with windows 7.
