The only way possible is by the addition of an external CD burner connected via the SCSI port. There's very few burners that are compatible with the 880 - Here is a list of them posted by dkfackler in 2017. There are no others that have ever been confirmed and if you hope that anything else works, it's a pot shot you will have to take. Note that most of them are just variations of the same few models:

Here is a list of 'compatible' optical drives. The VS recorders, as you know are very fussy with regard to drives that will work. YMMV.

Note that your Ricoh model is listed, but didn't work on my (then) 1680.

Here is a list of the working drives:
JVC --
XR-W2010R2626
XR-W2040
XR-W2042 ***

TEAC --
CD-R55S
CD-R56S
CD-W512SB

RICOH --
MP6200S-- didn't work for me.



PLEXTOR QPS --
CD-R PX-R412C
CD-R PX-R820T
CD-R PX-W4220T (recently reconfirmed)
CD-R PX-W8220T (recently reconfirmed)
CD-R PX-W124TS (recently reconfirmed)
CD-R PX-W8432T
CD-R PX-W1210S (recently reconfirmed)
CD-R PX-W

Oh - I should add that considering how expensive new stock of these drives are and considering how a person must trust that one of these models will work, if purchased used, you might give some serious thought to purchasing Bill Casey's VirDIS system for PC.

Although it's some serious money, it's no more than a new old stock CD burner that has very limited usefulness outside of using it with the VS today. Bill has been recently perfecting his software to perform the standard CD functions of a VS external burner (besides it already fantastic usefulness as an external VS hard drive). I'm very hopeful that his tests with the 1680 will carry over to the 880 as well.

Even though it's not ready yet, it appears to be very close now. At least look at the VirDIS forum here on the Planet and read up a bit on it. I would strongly suggest that you also send Bill a Private Message (PM) and ask him about it in regards to the 880. He's the VirDIS developer. I have been excited to be able to test some of the new changes lately and especially those that will allow us 1680/880 users to add CD operations to its uses!

This would be huge for people looking for some external storage and backup solutions beyond what is quickly becoming a scare and more expensive than ever external SCSI option.

I hope this helps and doesn't discourage you.
