How does Pioneer DVR-215 differ from DVR-215BK, and what dvd media would go best with the writer. As it would be a precedence for me to use a pioneer dvd-writer, since i have been using 2 generations of sony dru series. The latter faltered thus reassessing my choices for a sony dru-840a, in addition raves on flashing of the firmware of a pioneer dvd writers has garnered accolades from many professionals. In addition as my motherboard does not support more than 2 sata connectors, D865PERL i would definitely require a sata to ide converter. Would anyone care to make a recommendation for a reliable converter thank you. Greatly appreciate you guys' help thanks!
