DVD Recorder Help

Hi, I just wanted to know if there are any eternal dvd recorders out there that can be attached to my computer so that I can burn AVI files, or any media to DVD?

Thanks

Hey Lyncat :slight_smile:

An external DVD drive? Yep, there are plenty, you have quite a choice!

I personally use an external LG (model E10N), but there are newer ones.

Usually they connect with a USB 2.0 or FireWire connection. There plenty to choose from as I said - where are you located?

I’m locate in Philadelphia.

I’ve seen some DVD burners in Target, but they didn’t look like they would connect to a computer.

Names / Brands would be greatly appreciated.

Where do you buy your equipment?

Thanks

I’m in the UK, so any of the sites/stores I buy my stuff probably wouldn’t be any good for you :wink:

Have you thought of buying online, say at Newegg?

I have had an LG GSA-E60L external dvd burner now for about 2 weeks and its excellent and they are very reasonably priced.

I bought mine off ebay from a seller with a very good rating.

I did a lot of reaearch and read various reviews and LG always seemed to be high up on the list as one of the best external dvd burners around, they come with a usb lead to connect to your main computer or laptop.

Here is the model i bought on kelkoo, priced at £37.99 which is a very good price.

Arachne is located in the UK. Doubt you’d want to shop with her—you’d wind up with 2 or 3 burners and an armload of blank media. :bigsmile:

Here is the place to shop in the US:

Hahahaha true :o :bigsmile:

Thanks for the link, I’ve just been all over Newegg and couldn’t find the externals :doh:

FWIW, I too would choose the LG E60L, based on what I’ve read here about it (people’s opinions), and IMO LG drives are pretty robust, quality burners. :wink:
