I cant decide what type of dvd burner to get.I dont really know much about them suchwrite speeds,lightscribe,etc.I dont know if i need to get one with a 52X write speed or a normal one with about 22X.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.I will be using it to burn movies i have made that are quite long and slideshow movies.
Samsung, Lite-On, and LG are all good, Of the 3 I like my Samsung best, it's the quietest. It's the 18x. I get one with LiteScribe, it will burn the label to the disk but the disks are more expensive and from what I read it takes forever. Given the price difference I'd go with a SATA, most mobo mfg are now only putting one ATA connector on their boards and so you can only use 2 ATA drives. There really won't be a significant performance difference
can you guys recommend a few specific dvd burners?
i think i want lightscribe and a dvd drive that can write on all dvd formats.
Other than High Def, Blue Ray and HD, any DVD burner will handle the 4 types of standard DVDs, -R, -RW, +R, and +RW. It's the disks you use that determines the format. At this time, unless you have a high def camcorder, probably doesn't make much sense to get a high def recorder given DRM won't let you record commercial high def disks unless you want to hack them
