Alright, heres the situation: I have an old dvd-rw burner (philips D01) which came in a dell computer. Anyway, ive been having nothing but problems with the drive recently...every other dvd-r or cd-r is a coaster and when it does work, it is ridiculously slow. I think it is about time to upgrade, and I need some suggestions. I want an 8x DVD+-RW burner that I can eventually firmware upgrade for dual layer. Ive been contemplating over the Pioneer dvr-107 at newegg which seems to be a good price (will me existing mounting screws work with the new drive?). This is also an appealing choice because of everyone saying that firmware will allow it to burn dual layer. Btw, what is the difference between the 107 and 107d? The only thing I see is the 107d is beige on newegg (and I would prefer black to match my dell) But, Ive also been looking at the I/O Magic IDVDRW8D which I can get for about $20 less than the pioneer and it has much faster cd-r burning speeds (40x) http://www.staples.com/Catalog/Browse/Sku.asp?PageType=1&Sku=554889 So, does anyone know if the I/O drive will be dual-layer upgradable? If so, it seems like a much better deal. So, what should I do?
