Archos Cesar CDRW/MPM claims to be "world's smallest and most portable CD writer." The device, introduced today by Archos Technology, is just slightly larger than a CD itself and offers a 8x8x24x CD-RW mechanism (limited with USB 1.1 interface). It is available with a choice of swappable interfaces, including USB 1.1, USB 2.0, FireWire, or PC Card. The unit is bus-powered and weighs only 14.5-oz. It is $250 and is bundled with a single interface cable, mastering software, and a 5V DC adapter.
