Any issue with the DVD recording since my p3-600 (MHz) laptop can do this fine. Just have to be patient.
About "reliable". Define "reliable". These drives are not that reliable and will last from 1 to a few years. None I know of are going to exceed that timespan. If you can live with replacing an under 99 buck drive in 2 years there are dozens of DVD recorders you can choose from.
I am trying to decide the best DVD-R/+R/&RW,CDR,CDRW burner for my Dell Dimension 4100 running Win XP Pro. I have a 800 MHz CPU and 256 RAM.
The DVDs that I see on various product reviews all expect/require a Pentium IV around 1.4 GHz or better.
Question No.1 Will there be a compatibility problem if I install any one of these DVD drives to a slower CPU (other than burning at a slower rate). I was thinking of a Plexstor PX-716 or PX-712 or equivalent.
Question No.2 If the above has a serious compatibility problem. Would anybody reccomend a reliable DVD unit for around $100 suitable for a Pentium III
