to compliment the DVD Wrtr. ?

I take it a DVD Wrtr can be a CD Wrt and also a DVD player ?

Ideally which other drive should compliment the DVD wtr please.

Your DVD writer should write to CD also. I use a cd writer and dvd writer for 'on the fly' copying. Both available very cheaply these days.

Like Maineman, I would recommend a CD writer. The reason is that I've found that CDs written on my CD writer are more reliable than CDs written on my DVD burner -- I don't know why, but for the price of new CD writers it's useful to have the alternative.

You can burn 2 CDs at a time too,if your software supports it

Most of my machines now have a DVDRW, a CDRW and a DVD ROM.

I reserve the DVDRW for writing DVDs, CDRW for writing CDs and the DVD ROM as a general purpose player for CDs and DVDs. DVD ROM machines are very cheap now and can almost be described as disposable so, if it gets messed up, it's no big loss. The price difference between the machine types is becoming less and less now so I may be rethinking this policy soon:-)

The way I read so far is a dedicated CD Wrtr and a slave DVD Wrtr.

Yes a CD writer and dvd writer is the best option....TT
