Hi there,
I have just got hold of a internal dvd writer( LG GSA- H42L).Im not sure whether to keep my old CD/RW in the desktop or just replace with the new one. Is there any advantage in having 2 drives?
Also, Ive bought an IDE cable for the LG, do i need another cable to power the drive?
Thanks,
Will

Hi willyv. The advantage of having two drives is that you can copy from one disk to another more easily than with just one drive. Your computer should already have spare power connectors.
