I have a DVD rom thingy in my computer, but it doesn't allow me to burn anything to DVD-R. Can someone recommend a good quality, good burn-rate DVD burner for my computer (a year-old HP)? Money isn't so much an issue; I just want the best-quality product available.
Pioneers are supposed to be really good and they are the only ones that can write a true dvd-rom. I use a Plextor though and that is also a really good burner which burns everything fine including "dvd-roms." (xbox 360 isos mainly and some DVD movie isos). However any burner that burns dvd-roms that isn't a pioneer isn't burning a true dvd-rom. What that matters though I'm not sure because like I said my plextor works fine. Hell, even my laptop burner automatically detects +R media and burns it at booktype dvd-rom.
With that being said, the pioneer 112d is only $35. Maybe someone else can clarify how pioneer is the only burner that burns true dvd-roms. I'm really not too clear on the subject.
Plextor, hmm? Been using one of their units (a type of proprietary CD burner) for years to back up my studio data from my Roland digital workstation. I never really thought of them for this purpose, though. If I wanted to use this DVD burner mainly for backing up Wii ROMs, which would be the better choice then -- Pioneer or Plextor?
