Media drives

I had a HP 7790 that got hit by lighting so I bought a HP 9340 running Win
Vista 64 bit The new computer has 1 media drive TSSTcorpCDDVDW TS-H653Q and I would like to ad a drive from my old computer. Which is best 16x DVD+/-R/RW Supermulti drive or 16x max DVD ROM? Should the added drve be the slave?Thanks for any help.

Yo-

Welcome to the forums-

If the old drive is sata like your new one then I would go with the 16x DVD+/-R/RW to give you the versatality vs. the ROM drive-eh!!
