    Got a Iomega External SuperDrive that support all single layer formats. Works fine with all, even the DVD-RAM. Quite and fast USB2.0.
    Problem with XP or driver, when stop the device (USB) it resets my PC

    I saw another one...TEAC....but this brand is not as popular as b4

    Also surprisingly TDK is absent this time...unlike previously....they are one of the most agresive...as a results I bought one on the last show

    Teac is good. I love Teac! I don't think a lot of people remember this brand.

    i'm using Asus, external USB/FW. So far quite good.

    Does anyone know if there are external USB powered DVD-burners around? For laptop use. Or USB-powered DVDROM-CDburners?

    Get the Plextor. I use the Plextor 716A. It is an extreme machine. Extremely fast, extremely stable, extremely quiet & zero-coasters generated. Got it 5 months back for $245 at the Cybermind , sim lim. Worth every cent.

    I also used the Plextor cd burner for 3 years and still going strong as new. No coasters generated as well. If you want quality and a troublefree dvd burner, go for this model.

    My company actually bought a usb-powered CD-burner before, i believe it was an Iomega. Yah, i was quite surprised too when i witnessed it writing CDs from USB power alone. That's why i was wondering if DVD-burners have progressed to that stage. i guess not.

    Sure you are not getting dual layer and double sided mixed up ?

    Dual layer DVD+R is every where now, but i've not seem a double sided drive (yet). DVD-RAM has had double sided disks for ages, but you wrote on the other side by removing the disk and sticking it in the other way up..

    A double sided drive is going to require two laser heads and that will bump up the price if the drive, as the laser head is probably the single most expensive part in the drive.

    The resulting disk will only be able to be read in a dual head equipped drive so playback compatablity would be limited.

    just a quick note, +RW is more stable than -RW.
    but still some drives are unable to read +RW discs. must use the nero toolkit to verify the drive's supported read/write formats

    Well some consolation espn to you, I got the plextor CD burner for $490 3.5 years back. But it is still kicking and never fails me.
    Small change lah when we think that once upon a time, the 1D cam cost 12K.
    Well at least we get what I paid for. No stress of failure when mission is critical.
