New DVD writer

If you were going to replace one of your drives i.e. DVD player or CD writer / player, with a DVD writer / player. Which one would should you do away with. Or to put it another way, which one goes and which one should stay?

depends on the speed of your current drives.

if you purchase a new dvd writer you definetly dont need the old dvd rom drive any more but your cd writer may still burn cdrs and cdrws faster than the new dvd writer will.

I have taken out both in mine and just have my DVD writer.

For most things I need its fine, as it does everything.

Unless you are heavily into CD or DVD writing is OK.

I have a CD re-writer 48 speed and a normal DVD player. I just wondered was the best to do away with to make room for a DVD writer, and wanted to know the best one to keep or throw away.

Thanks M
