First of all, apologies if this question has been asked before or is posted in the wrong forum.
I currently have a CD-RW (Lite-on LTR-52327s) and a DVD-ROM. The DVD-ROM has stopped working and I was thinking of replacing it with a cheap DVD-RW, but my investigations so far have found that DVD-RWs come with Nero V6. My CD-RW utilises Nero V5.5. I have tried installing Nero 6, but found that I lost RW capabilities.
So my question is, if I install a DVD-RW with Nero 6 will I suffer a loss in the functionality of the CD-RW? Or can I run two different versions of Nero simultaneously?
Also if anyone can offer some advice as to which of the Lite-On SHW-1635S and LG GSA-4167BA is better it would be appreciate. At the moment I’m leaning towards the LG.
The reason I have been hoping to preserve my CD-RW's full capabilities is because it's only a year old (I know this like dog years in the computer world, but...) and because I have loads of CD-RWs (a bad case of paranoria after losing lots of data). But, as kalstras, points out, why have loads of CD-Rws when I can have few DVD-RWs!
Thanks a lot guys. Any advice on which DVD-RW to get?
