So I am about to buy the NEC ND-3520A, and want to know about the DL Discs....most movies don't require them, if what I have read on the net is correct....movies like LOTR which are, lets just say long...anyhow, they have hours and hours of special features. Now if I want to backup that movie, I will more than likely need my DL discs...but say for an average movie...like My Big Fat Greek Wedding...I can just use a regular DVD-R right? I know this depends on the file size...I'm a Network Admin by trade, so its ok to get technical with me...its just that I have never used a DVD Burner before, at least not to make backups of my personal movies.
Second Question....NEC ND-3520A is a standard IDE drive, so I should be able to place it into a CoolMax case and use it as a portable drive, right?
Looking for info...
