I already have a stand alone burner and I'm looking to buy a good quality/low price burner for my computer.

Anyone have any suggestions on what one to buy and what software can I use to get around all the digital locks?

Thanks in advance.

Just got this one a few weeks ago and it works very well.

For the software use Dvdshrink.

I can't use an internal drive, my PC isn't fast enough...anybody recommend a good external burner?

That is an excellent price for what it is.

Yep..go for at least a 16x and a Dual Layer. No sense in buying obsolete technology.

Miles,

Thanks for the suggestion - I purchased it off Newegg after reading the glowing reviews.

I'll let you know what I think when I get it.

What version of Nero will I need? I'm not real familiar with it.

Is this a good deal?

Nero 6 ultra is like 90 bucks in stores.

I'm wondering if there are any hidden strings attached on this one.

Weird.

Quite odd. Save target as works fine for me as well...If you can, i'd try downloading it on a different computer and then burning it to a CD or something.

Actually, what browser are you using? Internet Explorer has always sucked handling FTP transactions...
