Hi all,
I'm trying to put together a secondary build that I can use purely for backing up my mountain of images and videos to DVD. It won't be doing anything else but that and backing up images to Flickr (hence WLAN card).

Can someone give me some advice on what is most important for facilitating multiple burning (e.g. what component). I have seen many posts about burning multiple copies of a disc, however I want to be burning three different dvds at once.

I have put together the cheapest system I could. Your advice is greatly appreciated!

Why multiple DVD's?

Copying to one or more hard drives is more longterm stable than DVD. 2 backup hard drives, 1 local and the other offsite, rotated weekly or so, would be far easier and safer than multiple DVD's which may not be readable in a couple of years. Yes...DVD's do go bad.
