    I have an internal CD-RW, and wanted a DVD burner. I bought an external LG GSA-E40N/L. Works great.
    When I get a new PC, a DVD burner will be included. Thus, I will have 2 DVD burners. Or should I ask for no DVD burner on a new PC? A DVD-ROM or a CD-RW instead?
    My question is this: I want to have 2 DVDs of copies of photos, work, etc. Is it ok to burn to an internal CD-R/DVD and an external DVD simultaneously? I want to save time, and burning at a slow speed such as 16x would take too long if burning one at a time. Besides, what's the point of having 2 DVD burners then?

    With the full version of Nero there is an option to burn to multiple burners, but I am not certain it will work with an external, I don't know why it wouldn't, I am just not sure if it will.

    Hey there M8,

    Both of the drives on my system are DVD burners - mainly because when I went to replace my CDRW drive, a DVD burner was the same cost.

    I have burned on to both drives at the same time, however it greatly affects the speed esp if you are using the computer for something else at the time.

    For convenience sake alone, its great...
