No mate- it will not burn dvd-r so you won't be able to burn Xbox/Ps2 games. It will only burn dvd-ram which is no good for consoles......
its not even a dvd-ram m8, its just a cdwriter and a dvd-ROM built in.
you need a pioneer a04/104 m8
Other drive options include Ricoh 5125, HP 200i, Philips 228k, Sony DRU-120. These drives all burn DVD+R and DVD+RW discs which also work great with the xbox and also have a slight speed advantage over the DVD-R/RW models. I fiddle around with xbox game compilations on rewritables (DVD+RW burnt at 2.4x) before commiting to DVD+R discs.
I personally own the Ricoh 5125, and have had a great run with it. One of the best purchases I've made. Disks are little more expense than DVD-R/RW, with current prices at about £1-50 each but the prices are dropping quick. Should be under £1 in the next couple of months, which is great considering the DVD+R discs started at about £7-50 only six months ago.
If you cant decide on which format, Sony is bringing out a drive (DRU-500) that writes to both types of disc.
Anyone know were i can buy a good DVD burner for a nice price?

Speaking of which burner to get, can anyone recommend a good burner program that will work with the Philips DVD+RW 200 series ? Ive got Nero, Prassi and CDRWIN. Prassi and CDRWIN dont recognise it at all, and Nero allows compilations to be created but it wont let me burn a DVD ISO Image onto it...it insists on trying to get me to load a CDRW !
Any help would be received with much thanks !
adders99, go with RecordNow Max (v4.1). Its the best program I've seen. I'm using it on my Ricoh, but I'm pretty sure it also works with the Philips drives.
cheers Subnet1, I'll give it a go...
