My dvd burner decided to pack in this week, I've been having troubles for ages. First it slowed down, then it began to not accept blank media and say it was empty, now it won't recognize any blank media at all, so I need a new one.
I've took a look and saw 2 pioneer burners on play.com each at £17.99 ones is sata and the other is pata, I don't know which to go for, they are both internal.
My main question is does anyone know a good deal on any dvd burners, can someone explain to me the difference between sata and pata, also how easy are internal burners to fit, as I've never opened my pc up before, but I can't find any external burners.
The burner I was using was a philips internal one that was originally in there when I ordered the pc from dell.
Any help's appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
