No, 'tis just a player sorry - I would've thought you could pick one up for MUCH less than £25 though?

Yeah, £25 is a bloody ripoff for a dvd rewriter. They're all dual layer burners now. That's nothing special. Maybe it was back in 2004 though :S

Yeah, just take the 'lid' off the base unit and swap the DVD or CD-RW drive for the new DVD burner, two leads (poss 3 if you include soundcard) need to be unplugged and replugged.

Will boot up the beast and get detailed spec for you within the hour!

base unit only delivered for £45 or £35 picked up - where are you based? I know you said driving was out of the question so I could deliver if you are local-ish for petrol money, would be cheaper than delivery!

If you go for the drive from PLAY it comes with a suite of software (NERO) that will help you transfer data/media

I live in alfreton,derbyshire

also with this pc will it work with a dual layer rw and will it run ok when i burn media to a dual layer disc? Cheers Mike

Spec...

P3 600Mhz with 320MB RAM, 20Gb HDD

In light of this (I quoted a 40Gb HDD and thought the spec was a little higher!) I'd do £35 delivered or £25 picked up! Or even swap for a decent PS3/Wii game!

I can't see any reason why a low spec should stop it working with a DL burner, unless someone in HUKD-land knows differently!

also would the dual layer drive be comptiable with the pc?
Sorry for all the questions but just want to be sure:-D

Also where abouts are you based?

..again, as said earlier, I can't see any reason why the drive wouldn't work with the PC.

Is the dual layer drive a rw drive?
#26
yes it is
#27
letuongthuy2000
yes it is


whats the best price you can do for base unit if i sort out courier:thumbsup:
#28
I think £55 is a reasonable price for such a system. Let me know. The motherboard and CPU alone can cost about £25, the memory about £10, the DVD-RW drive £10 and the HDD £10 plus other things like: case, PSU, etc.

Will offer £50 and i will pay for courier?

ok will take for £55 and i will sort out courier by Dhl:thumbsup:
#31
ok, I'll throw in a normal Toshiba DVD drive as a free item as well so that you can burn DVD on-the-fly (read and write at the same time) if needed. Since I'm away on Tuesday and will be back on Wednesday, any collection must be made after that. I'd prefer payment via BT (though Paypal is ok too). Please pm me for payment details.

d'oh, pipped at the post! Great bargain there mate!
