    my dad set aside Rs. 3000 for me to buy a dvdrom-cd RW combo

    but i see that i think i need a usb thumb drive more.

    my nearby shopkeeper is giving it for 1200 (128 mbs) -sony microvault

    but onsite prices r gvery high

    so i was wondering, should i go in for a cdRW + usb thumb drive? or

    dvdrom+ usb thumb drive.

    i want a dvd drive to acces digit dvds, and movies.

    a cd RW to take hdd backups and create my own mp3 cds

    and a usb thumb drive to transfer large amount of data

    videos take up a lot of space dude...1 music video can take upto 50MB depending on the quality....that's when a cd comes in handy...but u do have a point....almost every computer will accept the usb drive...

    This is the only thing good, USB drive can be used anywhere, U sure U get permission in Tulsi, if U can go there then come to meet me in Arena on monday, it just right to it

    CD writer will be a better choice, I was also in a dilemma waht to buy last year, so I baught Combo drive, & then sold my floppy drive & baught a Old 32 MB pen drive, the cost for Sony Microvault is rite

    Arena = Arena Multimedia

    There is no need to buy a USB 2.0 card, it will work fine with USB 1.1, although these things won't come in Rs 3k only, I would say get a DVD ROM & USB Drive, to move files use the pen drive, if they are large brake them with WinRAR

    Go for DVD+CDRW combo
    Its not easy to transfer files with a usb drive just as u think.
    I possess one.
    It requires Windows 2000 or XP or else everytime u need to install the drivers where ever u wanna connect.

    Combo+ Drive Casing

    Hi,

    An idea struck me... You can go for a combo drive and to get your data transfer done you can buy an external Hard Disk casing (Under 1200/-), so that you can use your HDD/Writer as an external drive. Check out bazee with keywords "External casing". Let me know, what you decide!

    Bye!

    GA
