Stabbing my shoe
Hey pals..

Long time and am back on the Digit forums. Well, am upgrading my PC and want to buy a brand new DVD Writer. My PC is a bit old and hence, don't need a SATA one.

I had taken a Samsung DVD Writer (Build Sept 2008) but it couldn't read the AVI files on brand new Sony DVDs I burnt on an ASUS drive. Moreover, I tried burning CDs n DVDs on it and it committed a large no. of errors in burning them with several sectors unreadable. So, plz help me figure out the right one. A few years back, DIGIT Reviews recommended Lite-On drives. Whats the scenario now?? Any particular model you can zero in on??

Cheers n e-peace...

In order of preference:

1) Lite On (Isn't it MoserBaer now?)
2) Sony
3) Samsung

Mine is Samsung. I am pretty satisfied.
