[QUOTE=sl_dvd;2157931]My computer right now has some old drives - a TDK 12x10x32x CD burner and an ASUS E616A DVD-ROM drive. I’ve been wanting to add a DVD burner to my system. I just got an iPhone too, so I’m also thinking about ripping all of my CDs so that I can listen to music on my iPhone.
So if I wanted to do accurate lossless CD rips (and maybe the occasional DVD rip), is the ASUS E616A good enough for that, or should I replace it with something else? And what would a good DVD burner be? If I need to get 2 DVD burners that complement each other, then I am willing to do that.
And these need to be IDE burners. Thanks for any suggestions.[/QUOTE]
