Can I use a dvd writer on my current system?

  Grudgie 18:40 08 Feb 2004

have been given differing advice for suppliers. Currently have a 3 Year Old PC (Athlon 700, TNT 32mb Graphics, 512 mb RAM, 100 GB Hard drives). I intend to change PC in about a year - it is serving my purposes at the moment, but in the meantime would like to install a DVD writer. Is my current setup up to the job? I am looking at buying either LG, MSI, NEC or Pioneer DVD writer. Suppliers seems unable to actually confirm one way or the other, does it depend on software I could use?

Replies appreciated

Shouldn't be a problem.

shouldn't be problem, may i suggest though that u don't set the write speed to high for the computer to handle....for some fairly older computers i have been aware of the computer not being able to allow the drive to write at its best speed (although that aint recommended anywayz)...i know that problem dosen't happen on most pc's...but it has been known...anywayz...shouldn't be at all a problem to install it :)
