Opinions required please

1) I NEED TO REPLACE MY CD REWRITER
Can anyone recommend a reliable replacement that will work
with Win 2000 pro service pack 4, that can also be used
with Nero and InCD?

2) I ALSO WISH TO PURCHASE AN EXTERNAL DVD REWRITER
This will be used with the same OS as above and also with a laptop.


My current version of InCD supports DVD/RW & CD-RW


Any suggestions greatfully received.

This is a 52X32X52 writer and I fitted it into my son's computer recently. Have to say, on testing it, was extremely impressed.

Rather expensive at around £80.00 - but well worth the money.

I'm not sure if it still exists, but I now have an Acer 1208A. It behaves very well, putting my fussy DVD-ROM drive to shame.

I doubt it exists looking at the recommendation above. Its a 12x8x32 job, but has the seamless link technology. Just meaning that if the computer cannot keep up with the drive the CD isn't ruined.

Bodi,

Is that an internal CDRW?

Yes! Comes in black or beige. I have a Plextor Plexwriter 12X10X32 SCSI writer and and the Premium leaves it standing.

and you use w2k pro?

The PlexWriter Premium fitted in my son's machine was an IDE interface.

Plextor also do a dual DVD writer too, you could probably find the specs here:
