So what do you buy, well luckily enough in today's market you can remove the decision making and just buy a drive that support DVD+R/RW and DVD-R/RW. The DVD-RAM drives are no good unless you wish to use solely for backup, but even then I would consider buying a 2nd hard drive first.

So which drive do you buy?

At time of writing we recommend the Pioneer DVRA06 Internal DVD Writer. A very reliable and fast drive, supporting both DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW formats, plus it is a CD-writer also. Of course this article will eventually date, so always look for the highest speed, duel compatible drive, and if possible stay with branded models, i.e. TDK, Liteon, Pioneer , Sony, etc.
