I am gonna purchase a new DVD Burner drive. I really hate this chore; because of the
firmwares/ patching/ media compatibility sh!t.ERR>>>
Anyhow, I always trust the advice here.
here is what I have:
WinXP Pro SP3
P4 2.6 GHz HT
2GB DDR RAM
Pioneer 112L 8.21 RPC1 DVD-RAM
LiteOn LH 20A1P KL0N DVD-RAM
There are 2 SATA connectors on the MOBO
Next is a
2.66 GHz Celeron D
512MB DDR RAM (currently) I may go to 1GB…
there are 2 SATA connectors ont he mobo.
this (celeron D) is the unit i wanna add a DVD Burner to.
Of what i have listed above no problems except a minor issue with some Verbs DVD+Rs being seen as 4X only??
anyhow i want something that can read well (RWs)
burning speed not too important
basically a good all around work horse
and I want the ability to make or reset it to RPC1/ region free/ etc…
(I rarely go faster than 12X; and thats on the Pioneer only; all else is 10X)
…I measured one time 16X vs 8X was like 10 sec faster?
I want the BEST 2 in the DELL. the 3rd in the Celeron D computer.
What do u recommend?
