swap external CDR with DVD burner ??
Hi, I have an external firewire Que! CDRW drive that I don't use anymore because my powerbook has an internal CDRW drive. I took it apart and the CD drive connects to the firewire controller via a standard IDE device and 12v power hookup.
I would like to buy a DVD burner and swap out the CD writer for the DVD burner. Just wondering before I buy the drive, would there be any problems with doing this? Here's the link to the drive on newegg:
it's a NEC Beige 16X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 4X DVD+R DL 16X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X - 2M Cache IDE DVD Burner - OEM.
Model #: ND-3520A BG
Also wondering, what software I could use to make backups of my kids DVDs? they are scratching them all up.
Sure you can do that. I've done just that for a friend of mine that was about to junk the old external drive.
any ideas about software? should I spring for toast with jam? whats the difference between the different toastproducts?
I hear iLife apps don't work on external devices... is that true?
Can I use any old IDE DVD burner? most say they are only compatable with windows.
I will be putting it in a Que! Firewire enclosure. Thanks~!
