I have an HP dvd burner with lightscribe. Is there an advantage to add an additional burner for copying or as a backup? Also, I'm confused about SATA and PATA....what do they mean and is there a difference? Also, are all the dvd burners compatible with Vista Home Premium?

I don't know about a burner but another player would be nice. Then you would be able to copy from that drive to your burner. Makes burning faster I would imagine.

If you have a SATA input, you would be best to use that input instead of an IDE (PATA).The transfer rate is faster, but then that depends on your what your motherboard can handle.

I hope this helsp.

To do disc to disc transfers you need allot of memory depending on what your copying. Unless both drives are SATA you wont see an increase in disc to disc transfers. You will see faster disc to drive transfers from the SATA drive but you will still lag when burning to the IDE.
