Which model Lite-On did you decide on ??
I am anxious to get a "second" DVD +-RW into my new Dell XPS410 A.S.A.P., and like I said before, use the one that came with it as the "player !! Soooooooooooo much easier to "dupe" music CD's for me......... just place the orig. CD in the "top" and "burn" in the bottom drive.
:disagree: Personally, I would NOT "stray" from the SATA in the Dell XPS410 to ANY sort if "IDE" (P-ATA) and especially with ANY sort of "adapter" !!
B.T.W. I have a BenQ 1640 and it's great, but it's in another one of my computers that is running great (actually the Wife's :)) and I refuse to take it out of that one.......... older chassis, bolted in, real P.I.T.A. if you know what I mean !!................. (the COMPUTER I am talking about, not the "Wife")
Anxious to hear of the SATA Lite-On you are thinking of................
