Solved Curious about cons in buying this BR Drive over a DVD Burner Tags: DVD Drives DVD Burner Burner Blu-ray Storage Product Last response: November 22, 2010 8:42 PM in Storage Share reaper2794 November 22, 2010 10:32:19 AM Hey guys. So I've been looking at Blu-Ray drives and I was curious about something. Now as we all know, these are your every day cd/dvd burners right here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=P... What I'm curious about is, will this Blu-Ray Reader WRITE Dvds? and if it does, will it be extremely slow? or the same speeds about? Do I need a blu-ray BURNER to also burn DVDs? What I'm hoping is that the Blu-Ray Reader will only read blu-rays, but will burn dvds. Am I correct?
