I have a Shuttle SS51 computer with a DVD/CRRW combo drive (single drive bay). I would like to replace this drive with a DVD recorder.Can I read CDs and DVDs with a DVD writer and if so which would you recommend?
no idea which drive is better than the other - -but you only need 1 drive - - when backing up a CD or DVD, the image is copied to hard disk first, then back to CD / DVD
You don't have to have a separate reader if you've got a burner. All DVD burners I know will read and burn CDs as well (I stand to be corrected). And if you want to copy a CD or DVD, your software will copy the disk to your HDD first and then prompt you to insert the disk you want to burn it to.
Thanks for the replies, just what I was hoping.I take it then that I can use the recorder to play DVD movies with existing PowerDVD software.
you will not be disappointed with latest LG or Liteon models, all sold at microdirect around £35
Thanks everyone, will have at a look at microdirect as suggested.
