New BenQ1620 on the way

Hi all. Have a 1620 on the way. Many questions as this will be my first DVD burner.Presently have (2) LightOn 52246 burners in system. Questions:

  1. What is the best solution to add the 1620 to my system? Replace one of the 52246 drives? Add the drive as a third? etc.

  2. Any sugesstions as to best media types and vendors. Maxwell and Verbatim seem to be recommended often. DVD-r or +f and also DVR-RW’s.

  3. The main intent here is to make backup copies of my DVD movies.

  4. The system here is:
    Asus P4P800D
    512Meg RAM
    (3) 80M Maxtor SATA drives
    Radeon 9200
    (2) LightOn 52246 CD Drives
    OP’s WinXP Pro,Linux10-Mandrake Dist

Thanks for any help.

Sorry. Was not paying attention when I first posted. The drives are 80 Gig not Meg and forgot the processor,P4 2.8G. Thanks.
