  1. My Sony's DVD laser quite recognizing DVDs. Luckily I had 1 week left on my warranty.
    I use my Sony to rip, write, and play DVDs. I rip 7 or 9 DVDs a week and write around 10 DVD-Rs a week also.
    My other ROM is just a Liteon 52x CD-RW.

    My question is, should I replace my CD-RW with a DVD-ROM or a CD-RW/DVD combo drive for ripping?

    I could use the more expensive Sony for doing its main job, (writing DVD-Rs), and using a CD-RW/DVD drive for ripping.

    What do you think about spreading the work load between 2 ROMs to possibly extending the drives life?

    I'm thinking of getting the Liteon combo drive.

    Thanks for any input.

  2. Since it appears that you have the money, just use your dvd writer for writing dvd's and get a second cd-rw/dvdrom for ripping/writing cd's/watching dvd's. It will save your dvd writer in the long run.
