It is not the drive itself that would enable that feature. That is something that is typically software driven.

The different types of DVD burners are: computer and stand-alone.

The computer type would be possible to have that type of software. Likely it would not be included with the drive.

The stand-alone type is like one that you would use for your home theatre/surround set-ups. It is not very possible that you could use that type of software for this. It does not have a hard drive that you could load up the software to make it work.

so r u saying that if i wanted to copy ps2 games i would need to get a burner that would go into my tower and then i would also need to get some software that i would install into my computer? if so, if i would copy dvd's would i need to get a dvd reader also? or would the dvd burner be able to read it. if i want to make an exact copy for a dvd, would it be like a cd where 1 drive reads the cd while the other drive burns it onto the disk?

I am sorry for the misunderstanding. External DVD burners can be used in your computer.

DVD burners are similar to CD burners, just more information. It is much easier to already have a DVD drive that you want to make a copy of, and a blank in the DVD burner. If you do not already have a DVD drive, it would makes things much easier to get one of those also.

In the case that the only DVD drive you have is a burner, then software will use your hard drive as a buffer, and you will have to switch DVDs. The process will be much slower as well.

Don't worry about it-sometimes I confuse myself :flowers: :thumbsup:

Yep, that is all you need: DVD player, (internal or external)DVD burner, and burning software.
