Thats if you have problems with hat type of thing.
I am trying to rid my machine of IDE and the 760SA looks like a good option to replace my great 716SA. My dad had Movie play back options on his 716A and had to put a SA.
The trick is being smart about it. I always sugges trying out mine before purchaisng their own, and once I get a 760sa I will have the 716sa sitting around for people to borrow.
That being said While I always considered ME to just be 98SE with a couple of features added, Windows 2000 SP4 is for al intents and purposes WindowsXP SP2. Why would either operating system have an affect on the write speed of an optical drive.
