[qanda]This thread is about the Samsung SE-S204N. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]First off, what a wonderful forum/site! So many members with so much knowledge. Also great reviews! It's a little overwhelming for a newbie like me.
Now on to my question. I'm looking to get a dvd burner drive for my computer. I will primarily be using it to back up DVD's and also to store home movies. I've been searching the site for days and have narrowed my choices down to a Samsung SH-S202N or SE-S204N. I have an older computer with a P4 2.26gHz processor, running Windows 2000 SP4, With IDE or USB 2.0 connection options. Would it be better to do the internal SH-S202N (IDE) or the external (which I've read is SATA based)?
Thanks in advance for any help.
