    Ok I am in a dilema.

    I got 2 choices

    1. A Lite-ON cd-rw/dvd-rom combo drive $76

    2. A LG 16x dvd drive and use my current cd-rw $45

    but there's a catch, my burner is old so the speed is Read:32x RW:4x Write:8x
    no buffer underun protection while the new one does.

    Now don't go sayin ah that burning is fucking slow!!!! Because I don't care if it's slow waiting 15-30 min isn't so bad. It the buffer under run thing that worries me.

    So what shall I choose?
    Ohh noo!!! I make dribbles!!!

    thats a tough choice but if you havent had any problems with buffer underrun errors yet then just get teh dvd drive but if u do have problems and have the cash to spare buy the combo drive.

    Gaint Antispyware is the #1 greatest Spyware/Adware cleaner ever created, I recomend it to everybody, even if you don't think you need it.

    I would say go with the combo drive.

    And if you can afford more then look into a DVD burner.

    Where are you from Keikan?
    if it's Canada,w hich I think it could be by looking at the prices of those drives, TigerDirect.ca has a DVD burner for $109.97 and you may even be able to find one cheaper
    Or you could just go with the combo drive you listed earlier
    Q6600 @ 3.42Ghz | Gigabyte EP35-DS3R | EVGA 8800GT 721/1802/2006 w/ Accelero S1 | 4gb Crucial DDR2 @ 760mhz | 750gb Hitachi 7k1000 | Corsair 520HX | 2 x Samsung SyncMaster T240 24" | Windows 7 Ultimate

    i have a TDK VeloCD 52x burner, and its NICE! and it only cost 70 bucks (american) havent burned a coaster ever. but, as i understand it, lite-on is a good choice for a burner, so i would go with that

    If I clean my temps and Defrag before I burn never noticed the buffer under run protection or even if it helps.
