I do plan to dig a bit more but since technology changes so fast I was hoping to get the latest and greatest input. I have a Dell Latitude C840. I need to replace the burner in the side bay. I have seen a review by someone who installed an ND-6500A in this laptop and it worked great. The question is, is this the best available for this job? They all look very similar spec-wise although the site I checked for the ND-6500 does not show that it can burn to DL media. It appears that the Toshiba SD-6472 can.
I'll leave it there, anyone who has installed a new slim DVD burner in a latitude or specifically the C840, which would you recommend?
