external DVD writer? Tags: DVD Writers Liteon Connection Plextor Sony Storage Last response: February 5, 2004 5:01 PM in Storage Share jjmai February 2, 2004 10:04:14 PM What's a good model of external DVD+/-RW writer (preferably from Lite-On, Sony, or Plextor)? Would it cause any error if it's linked through a USB1 connection?

You would be better served by buying a $10 USB 2 PCI card. <A HREF="http://www.cdrinfo.com/Sections/News/Details.asp?Relate..." target="_new">Here is link</A> to a burner. Can't find your answer ?
