Greetings,I want an all around solid dvd writer. It must be around $50.00 and available at most big box stores.
I write about 100 dvd per year. I use taiyo uden mostly.
Hi and welcome to the forum
If you want a SATA drive I suggest the NEC/Optiarc 7240
For an IDE drive, if you can find one, I suggest a Pioneer 116 or 117
thank you for your reply
How can I determine if my computer will accept a sata drive?
Also, I do not think the Pioneer is available anywhere.
What is your mainboard? If you have a recent board, then almost certainly SATA drives are supported
just check the manual of your motherboard (or computer)
Also, I do not think the Pioneer is available anywhere.These Pioneers are indeed hard to find. Another option for Pata/IDE might be Optiarc AD720xA series (AD7200, AD7201, AD7203). It's the predecessor of AD724x series, which is unfortunately only available as Sata version.
