Thinking or ugrading from CD burner to a DVD duel burner.Looking on the dabs site,at the numerus drives,notice a paticular model_MSI DR8-A_seems to have all the requirments,disk supports,dvd-r dvd+ anybody got any reports on this model!reasonably priced as well_£99.99p_theaceae
I have the MSI DR4-A which writes at 4X. It has worked well for me but can be fussy about the discs it uses for HD-Burn (this is writing twice as much to a normal cdr disc) The 8X will only work on a disc that is capable of being written at that speed not just any DVD+R
You all seem to be missing the point. The NEC ND-2500a uses a new chipset and writing stratergys to enable it to write to just about anything, yes even Princo's! For a mear 15 English pounds more than a 1300a you can write to both media at 8x (providing the descriptors are in place on the media) and not worry about what discs you shove in it.
I think you should fully read the review you are sending us to above as even the reviewers coudn't get the drive to write to all media at 8X. Yes it does seem a good machine and worth the money but as always if you use cheap media it doesn't guarantee that the cheep disc you have written on will be any good a couple of years down the line.
