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? More about : external dvd writer JP5 February 5, 2004 5:01:51 PM It would be slower, I believe CDR drives are limited to 8x speed on USB 1.1. So DVD would be limited to something like .5x speed. 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 ?
