there are alot of good burners out there.. one of the best for doing backup's of games and is priced right is the liteon it reads all major dvd and cd formats. i bought mine for $99. USD from http://www.pcclub.com
for the 8X it covers dvdr+ and dvdr-. just remember dvd+ is only for data while dvd- is data movies music and more.
the biggest thing to remember when using a dvd burner is hard drive space and memory. the more memory you have packed into your system the better for burning. in order to go from VHS to DVD they suggest about 10 gigs of hard drive space to do file conversions.
hope this helped. any more ? just ask.
fixed the pcclub url... bad me..
