If a new pc spec has one of each of:

Multi format dual layer DVD writer (16x)/CD-RW (40x)drive

and

16x DVD-ROM drive


Why would I need both? Would I only want the second one if I watch DVD's?

Thanks in advance

You don't need both unless you think that you might want to make copies of CD's and DVD's.

Some people seem to think it is better to have a DVD ROM for playing DVDs and a writer just for writing.

The writer actually has two sets of llasers oe for reading the other for witing DVDs plus anoth er set for reading and writing CDs
