    Why must you destroy either?
    Can't you simply uninstall?

    Prolly the CD-ROM is the likely choice.

    Cd and Cdrw for copying on the "fly" quicker.
    Yes as said go for a dvd rw/ cd rw combo which ever way you go before you take say the cd rom out of the machine go to device manager and remove the driver for it then hopefully you won&#39;t have a problem like many have posted in the past about "Windows can&#39;t find my Cd etc" when I upgraded to a Dvd.

    Unless the manufacturer welded the unit in ( not really very common) it is probably held in with screws. Thus, it can be removed.

    Google "screw/screwdriver" for further information.

    Yes, a DVD burner will also burn regular CDs, but it is still nice to have a separate CD unit installed as you can then copy from one disk directly to another without having to DL to your HDD first.

    When someone says that they have to "destroy" a unit in order to remove it, then I think that erring on the side of safety is prudent.

    All of the DVD units that I have seen will burn a CD at pretty fast speeds, not just the "expensive" ones.
    The pricier models tend to burn DVDs faster, but even so, it&#39;s way slower than CD burning.
