Hi everybody. I'm new of this forum and I think you can help me. Right to the point. At the moment I have a CD-Rom and [bold]I need a CD-Writer[/bold] and, why not, a DVD-Rom. I'm looking for a cheap (but not the cheapest) and reliable product. What the market around me offers is two combo: - a Samsung 52x16x52x + 16x DVD-rom - a LG 40x12x40x + 12x DVD-rom both for 99€ (ab. 65£) [bold]My question are [/bold](in order of importance): 1. Are combos less reliable than CD writers for burning (music in particoular)? It's better to buy a CD-writer and a DVD-rom separately? 2. Are combos more delicate? (If necessary I found a good Samsung 52x CD-writer for 59 €) 3. On the Samsung box it's written that it writes 90min-CD: anybody knows anything about the LG one? 4. Looking through the forum, the problem of making a back-up copy of protected CD hit me: are that combos good or poor with regard to this problem? Should I look for other brand? 5. Have I missed anything? 6. What would you do? Thank you.
