Internal SATA DVD Burner Recommendation

vbimport

#1

Well it has finally happened… my Lite-on SOHW-1633S burner has died. So I am looking for recommendations. What is the best all around (SATA) burner? I do some DL burning, but not much. Also, what is a good for backing up (ripping) ones purchased movies. Not that I do that, was just curious. Quality is much more important than speed. I also have about 200 blank Sony +R media so would need it to be compatible with that media. And, last but not least I need it to be beige as the rest of my case is. Thank you in advance for all your help.

Unfortunately not all chipsets work correctly with SATA optical drives. Silicon Image and some Intel chipsets do, but many others don’t. If yours doesn’t work with SATA optical drives, then you’d need to get PCI SATA adapter with Silicon Image chipset or exchange the burner for PATA model. I’d simply get PATA instead unless you know your chipset works with SATA burners.

I’m assuming you’re talking about the MB chipset. I have basically rebuilt my system except for the HD. My new MB is the brand new ASUS M3A78 Pro. It has the AMD 780G + SB700 chipsets. I hope that helps with any recommendations you or anyone else might have. Thanks!

i can guess you an LG GH20N/L ( lightscribe with L )
both are excellent
it is a wonderful CD writer and very good DVD Writer also
besides he has a strong error correction mechanism : a perfect reader
unfortunately there are not reviews about this model but you can take an idea here :

How does this compare with the Samsung [B]SH-S203N?[/B] And, do both of these have interchangeable faceplates (Beige)?

Hi,

[quote=Livesms;2145740]I want to buy a new one instead of NEC4551A
I’m looking for a quality and stable burning, PIE/PIF scan ability and maybe LightScribe[/quote]
Good burning: Nec 7200 series (not sure about the scanning capabilities of those Nec drives)
for scanning: Liteon (not-so-good CD-R performance, IMO)

[quote=Livesms;2145753]Nec AD-7200A SATA vs. Pioneer DVR-215 SATA after reviews reading[/quote]Just a matter of taste. :slight_smile:
7201S (Sata) additionally supports Lightscribe btw.

What is the difference btwn.

DVD±RW/±R/DVD-RAM Nec LabelFlash 20VD-R/8DVD-RW/16DVD-ROM, 48CD-R/3CD-RW/48CD-ROM, SATA, (AD-7201A)

Does AD-7201A supports SATA? In my price AD-7201A marked with SATA


#11

AD-7203S uses LabelFlash disc labeling method and is SATA.
AD-7201A uses LightScribe disc labeling method and is PATA.

IOW, the decoder for 720xy is:
x = 0: no direct disc labeling support
x = 1: LightScribe
x = 3: LabelFlash
y = A: PATA
y = S: SATA

Some stores will not have the most accurate specification listed. It’s always better to check the manufacturer’s site for information, as long as the model number is shown.
