    Evening all

    I've just purchased a new PC and it came with the standard cd-rw and dvd drives. I'd like to get a drive that writes -r and RAM but all I can find are combos with cd-rw which I don't need. Are there RAM/dvd -r combo drives available?

    Regards

    The Dude

    Virtually all DVD burners write to CD-R/-RW these days in addition to DVDR. That said your best bet is to remove the CDR (assuming you only want two optical drives) from your new PC and keep the DVD-ROM. Some software (some games for example) is protected and will not run on PC optical media burners. Hence having a DVD-ROM and multi burner is an excellent all-round option.

    Have a look at post #2 in the 'PC GUIDE: DVD-RAM (inc DVD-RW VR Mode) To DVD-R' sticky thread at the top of this forum. It gives advice on a few DVD burners to look at. A good all-round option at present is the LG 4120B which burns everything currently available (DVD-RAM, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW and CD-R/RW).
