When DVD recorders were hundreds of dollars, I kept the CDRW drive. Now that I pay from 49 to 79 dollars for a DVDRW (all format from 8 to more X DVD speeds) this is no longer an issue. I just fit the DVD and DVDRW pair.
I am considering getting a DVD burner soon, but have a few questions that I hope someone can answer for me first.
I have a Gateway 500XL with a DVD-ROM drive and a CD-RW drive. Would it be better to just get an external DVD burner or should I remove the CD-RW drive and install an internal DVD burner (which is cheaper) in its place? If I do the latter, what should I be aware of? Any significant problems/issues? Pros/cons?
In addition, if I do decide to replace the CD-RW drive with a DVD+/-RW drive, can I install the old CD-RW drive in another computer? If so, any issues I should be aware of?
Thanks in advance,
