Gonna get a DVD Burner

I think I’m gonna go pick up a dvd burner this evening after work. Not sure yet as to what I’m gonna get. I just know I need one. I bought a 160Gb hard drive a few months ago, it’s about 90% full now. I wanna free up some space on it by burning some of the files to DVD’s.

I was thinking this one from Wal-Mart looks pretty good. It’s an HP 16x DVD+/- Double-Layer LightScribe Drive. Those LightScribe drives are pretty cool. They have the ability to etch labels directly onto the DVD. So no more crappy looking titles/labels made with sharpie markers.

Not quite sure what I’ll end up getting yet, but I’m definately gonna get something.

  • My 16x DVD burner serves me well. Burned a simply 700 MB CD the other day in 8 minutes, give or take. Get one, and make sure it’s good!

    Good luck hunting,

    LiteScribe sounds very cool but before taking the plunge download and view the video from http://www.digitalmediathoughts.com/articles.php?action=expand,8187.

    The disk labeling process takes between 23 and 29 minutes!!! The disks are considerably more expensive than standard disks. The reviewer found that the labeled CDs look great, but DVDs aren’t that good.

    Let us know what you decide.


  • Whoa! Fuck that. Definately not gonna go for that. I was gonna read some more about em before I go get one. Didn’t get around to it lastnight, but I’m glad you’re lookin out for me. 🙂
