you do a search on this forum re Dabs and you will see the difficulties in dealing with them. They basically only want to know you if you know what you want to buy and go for it. Then you pray that what you've bought doesn't suffer any problems coz they won't want to know again! Many drives don't come with decent software, I recommend Nero 6 for your purpose. I use this with an Optorite dual format writer (made by Sony) from PCW now down to £89.99 click here ant it performs faultlessly.
