The specs for the HP don’t list Windows ME, possible lightscribe software won’t work for you. Can’t seem to find much in the way of info/reviews on that HP, you’re on your own, there :). And again, be sure if you go with the AD-7200A to call or E-mail the seller and Make Sure that the drive you are getting is an Optiarc AD-7200A no matter what letters they add to the end of it. :iagree:. BTW- HP drive pretty old and slow, think you’re better w/ Optiarc.

@ mickk,

Perchance have you reviewed the Read First sticky titled “The top 5 Optical drives of 2008 (CD Freaks members choice)” (http://club.cdfreaks.com/f61/top-5-optical-drives-2008-cd-freaks-members-choice-249785/) posting and the numerous CDFreaks Forum Optical Drive Reviews (http://www.cdfreaks.com/reviews)?

Also NewEgg has numerous Product Reviews on their Optical Drives.

So there is a strong: don’t buy!

Thanks, bjkg
The two most popular are Samsung and Pioneer. I would not have even looked at Pioneer as a serious manufacturer. I hope it is not for some feature like Light Scribe, which I don’t use. I went with HP because when burners were expensive, HP was in the market. Thanks, again Mick
