Have decided to get a new DVD writer, but am absolutely clueless about which ones are good and whcih arent. I have a sony DVD camcorder, so I need a dvd writer that will be able to inport files and turn it into film. Also needed is the multi regional DVD format support. Finally, it'll have to be external, and connected via USB. can anyone please advise the best models? thanks, VAZSTAR
(1) reading: all drivers are region locked and you can change region 5 times, this is required by law (I think). However, (a) you can hack firmware to make region free (b) there are many software available to get around this problem
(2) writting: you can make your movie region free, all DVD authoring softwares have this function
Or the new Panasonic DVD writer (all formats) model SW-9585-C on offer at Microdirect for £36-41 inc vat. Same as the LG this also supports DVD-RAM. I purchased one this morning from their Manchester store. Manufactured in Indonesia in March 2005. click here
....Ok, none of the above fulfil your request for an external DVD writer. These are still expensive. You would be better off swapping over your CD-RW drive and replacing with an internal writer. There are 24 external DVD writers listed on the Kelkoo website click here No comments as I do not have an external writer altho I am considering placing my LG 4163B into an enclosure. click here
