I am looking for some solid advice on DVD burners for my upcoming purchase. Previosly I was looking for an external drive to use on my desktop and my mother's laptop. Someone suggested a good one by Sony, but now I think I'd rather get an internal since they read/write faster(I think). this is my config:
Master - Seagate 80 GB HD Baracuda
Slave - Maxtor 8 GB HD (dead)
Master - 52x Samsung CD-ROM
Slave - 48x-16x-48x Samsung CD-RW
my plan is to replace the plain cd rom with the new DVD burner, giving me new Dvd capabilities and only losing a little cd read speed(possibly). I dont think I need 3 optical drives (if i put the dvd in the dead HD channel) and I'd rather get rid of a plain cd rom than a burner.
Aside from that above, I was looking for more clear info on terms like dual layer, double layer and Lightscribe.
