I just have to rave. My wife is awesome.
I wanted this external firewire Double layered DVD-Burner for like $250. She said no, wait until the price comes down… so I whined and waited.
Well, I found a deal for a normal DVD-burner Internal that was $75 after a rebate. When I was at work, I called her to tell her about it, but couldn’t find it…BUT I found a better one that was $72 without a rebate and she let me buy it.
WELL! IT ROCKS. It is the DW822 by BenQ. It is a DVD-RW and I found out it is upgradeable to the double-Layered Discs that are coming out. All I have to do is download the Firmware that is coming out in like September for IT!!!! AND…
It came with a program that only works with this burner that will rewrite the Open Book code at the beginning of DVD+R and DVD+RW so that really old DVD players will read it as a DVD-ROM and play them. Too good to be true, but I tried it on Dominic’s DVD player (that used to be ours) and it would never play a burned CD‑R disc, and it wouldn’t play the DVD+R either, after I set this configuration I tried a new DVD+R disc and it fired right up!
If you are thinking about purchasing one…this is the one to get!!!!
