I am sure you all have been asked this question over and over again but I am in the processing of deciding which DVD burner to buy. I have been to various sites and have found few reviews that are much help if I could find any at all so that is why I am here. I bought a Sony burner refurbished this spring and the damn thing never worked period. I am trying not to make that mistake again. I am running Windows XP MC on a Dell Inspiron E1505. I am looking for an external burner with a price range from $100 to $200. If you have any suggestions it would be appreciated. Thanks.
