My NEC 3540A is starting to give me problems (discs aren't always recognized on spin-up). (Yes, I've tried cleaning the laser).
Anyway, I figured I'd replace it, but my system is old and only has to SATA connectors. I was just getting ready to put a second HDD in which means IDE for the optical drive.
Can anyone make a suggestion? I'm looking for a plain old DVD burner. I don't require BD reading or writing, Lightscribe or anything else.
Is there a drive any of you can recommend that is still available or some sort of good quality adapter for converting a SATA drive back to IDE?
I'm pretty much open to any suggestions at this point.
