    I left Ritek after whatever dye they were using went bad (unreadable disc) within 6 months of burning the disc & I haven't trusted Ritek since. It was a well known problem that Ritek had several years ago.....

    I may have tracked one down. Is there any kind of protective case these could go into?

    Could? I suppose you can put them in an external enclosure. I have my Lite-on LH20A1S in an enclosure. I only ever use it for scanning. I have 6 bays for optical drives. But I have 9 drives in total :S

    I only have a laptop. I need to find some way to use the drive. I can't just hook it up, the way it is, can I? I need to treat it as an external drive.

    I've been putting everything on 1TB Hitachi Touro mobile hard drives for some time now . . I purchased 7 at Office Max a while ago for $59 each (what a deal!)

    Mostly my DVDs go to my kids, grandkids and my wife . . you know, people who aren't careful enough to handle my hard drives . . .

    Next time Office Max has the drives on sale, I'll buy them out again . . .

    Have a safe holiday people

    've been storing everything on 3 terabyte external hard drives for the last 2 years now & they have come out with 4 terabyte external hard drives so I'll get one or tow when my last 3 terabyte hard drive fills up like the other two are almost full. Beats burning & storing DVD's that's for sure!!

    Just be sure you have redundant arrays. More than one copy. When a 3Tb drive falls flat on it's face, that would be VERY upsetting LOL! Haven't personally had a failure in anything younger than 9yrs old.

    Yes I see your point but external hard drive seem to be pretty reliable these days. But hard drives do wear out as I had to replace an internal hard drive that was starting to fail (No I didn't loose any data) after 4 or 5 years of use.

    Would any connector of this type work, or are there versions out there that are just plain junk? Maybe you can recommend a few brand names to aim for? For example?: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812705172

    Also, I found both both the 7260 and the 7261. Which is better?

    I think the (1) has lightscribe, where the (0) does not. Don't quote me though. There were 62's and 63's too. Not sure what their differences are. As long as they have NEC chips, you should be good.

    The reviews for the Rosewill are pretty good.

    I've used the following ones:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812189169
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812107114 This one is my favorite. Though only IDE capable.

    Can't seem to find the other one I have, but they all work pretty good. No faults.

    The other I listed is Sata/IDE. I haven't had any troubles with either of them. One I gave to a buddy.
