    I am trying to find out the most inexpensive way of burning dvd's on my laptop
    i have been told to get a pioneer 108 and an enclosure for it so i can connect it to my laptop
    my questions are:
    can this be done?
    is it the best way/cheapest?
    i have a ieee 1394a connection does this help the situaion?
    many thanks for your help

    BUMP I have the same questions and am a Newbie. Many thanks to Scuba Pete and bbmayo for all the help I have found so far.

    I will buy a new external burner for my laptop this week and have been influenced by all my reading to the Pioneer or Plextor.

    My question is should you spend extra money for the combo USB2.0/Firmware DVD's. I have the 1394 port as well. Will this improve the burn and possible problems? If burning slow for quality is the firmware option really necessary.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Want an external DVD burner for around $150 please advise how to best spend my money.
