I am considering buying a CD-R or CD-RW to replace the CDROM/DVDROm my Tiny PC came with 4 years ago. It's a Pentium II 400MHz running Win98. I want to use it for a) backup b) storage of digital photos and c)copy of mp3 files for playing on my hi-fi. Having read a number of topics my impression is I don't really need a re-writer as this would only be for my backups which I do 'come the blue moon' and I don't need to get the fastest model either - what would be an adequate model to go for? Secondly my understanding is that the Tiny PC I have won't allow me to install a CD-R as well as my existing CDROM - is this a general Tiny thing? - certainly there doesn't seem to be any slots in the casing for additions. Thanks
That's exactly my point if you buy a brand spankin new 52X CD-RW drive with the latest software - it aint gonna work right on that spec - can really buy anyhting slower? I doubt the MOBO is ata100/133 compatible
not sure from the above whether I'll be able to get one or not. Is it due to the fact it is a 400MHz PC? If it is worthwhile getting one, what would be the fastest viable speed to go for. Secondly does the 'burn proof' system mean it doesn't matter I have a slower PC anyway.
