    Hi...I currently have a DVD ROM and a DVD Burner in my computer. I am uprgrading and was wondering if you can have 2 Burners in one computer. Not sure if it would cause any conflicts.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes you just need to have a slot and a spare IDE connection which you should unless you have 1 DVD drive and 3 harddrives?

    My Dell desktop currently has 2 dvd drives. One is a burner and the other is just a dvd rom. I have 1 internal hard drive and 1 external USB Drive.

    So I can just replace the two old DVD drives with 2 burners?

    Just remember you need to set one as a master the other as a slave,there should be a diag on both the new drives showing how to do it or just look at the old drives config,you can also utilise external USB burners if you want portability in conjunction with the internals
