    You're welcome. I would like to add that it also burns Aone discs with no problems (far cheaper than Verbatims).

    Cool this is £29.95 at Zavvi. I have been using Verb's and still getting fails with my Laptop Drive maybe 3 fails in 10!

    I did spot this drive but overlooked it as i had read slim drives & USB (not plug in) are not the best drives to get?

    Can only repeat what I said mate. My laptop has a (notoriously) crap matshita drive which struggles to burn anything. The Sammy burns 100%, slim/USBor otherwise. Good reviews everywhere for it.
    BTW, I'm sure it's gone up £3 from Amazon since I posted it!

    8x is plenty. It's recommended to burn 360 games at as slow a speed as possible to minimize the risk of errors anyway.
