Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My internal DVD_RW has broken and i'm looking to replace it.
    But do i go for another Internal drive or an External drive via USB?
    External would mean i could then use it on other PC's.
    Any one know of any good makes to go for & where to buy from?
  2. Internal DVD writers are 15-20 quid these days. Just check out what kind of connector your old one has IDE/SATA whatever and have a quick google. I inevitably end up at but that's because I'm lazy :)
  3. Just had a look at Ebuyer and can get a Lite-On External for £31.
    Will order it later, thanks for the quick reply.
  4. I've just bought a lite-on external which is lightscribe compatible for about the same money and its excellent.
