    Hey all,

    Can anyone recommend a good DVD drive, needs to be internal, +-r, black and cheap i.e. sub £40.
    I had a lite-on drive that I posted about a couple of weeks back which I had to send back, so I want to steer clear of them and NEC.

    Any ideas anyone? (UK)

    It was this one, can't find a model number for some reason!? something like shw-160ps.

    It worked fine buring DVD's and reading blank ones. When it came to reading pressed media (actual legit ones) it wouldnt recognise them. Just kept getting empty DVD drive messages.
    I was probably just unlucky as I have seen some good reviews for lite-on DVD drives, that just kind of put me off them.

    Thanks for the link I'll check it out now.
