You can have both and doing so makes dvd copying (for personal use) a bit easier.

Both will work together just fine.. And its better to run both as certain media which might be having problems on one drive can be tried in the other..

use both so in case u get some scratchy dvd's then put them in ur old lg.. plus copying will be easier....

Thank's for all your replys. I will run both burners. Where do I plug the new blu ray burner? I have a extra cable to hook it up,does it plug in next to the old LG burner? Thanks again

The new Pioneer drive is a SATA drive. That will just plug directly into your motherboard SATA port.

Thanks for all the help guy's. I went with both burners and they work great.
