    Hi folks,

    Thinking of getting the dvd burner below.. it fits what i'm after in that its external and usb so i can plug and play at work or at home and its dual layer. My needs are backing up some dvds' (our wedding dvd) backing up the odd movie and backing up x box games. I'm just wondering if its a safe choice to go for? My dvd players are 2 Sonys - NS900 and NS930 so hopefully they'll be able to handle the discs i throw at it.

    Also for backing up dvds - should i be able to pop in my source in my dvd rom and using the software just to a straight copy to the dvd burner? i dont have much hard disk space (till i upgrade the pc)

    The other question i have is in relation to media - whats the best/affordable/reliable discs to use for burning and where's a good place to source them?

    Any info or opinions valued
