Quick Question about DVD Burners/Readers

By Colin246

  1. I am planning to purchase a DVD Burner. I have heard that many burners aren't very compatible with games like Crysis. What would be a good, cheap DVD burner/reader if I want to be able to play new games and burn DVD's and CD's?

    I don't know where you heard that, but I don't believe it. I've owned probably 10 DVD burners and have used maybe another 10 more in builds I've done for other people, various brands and speeds and not once have I had any problems reading disks (unless the burner died).

    I was reading reviews on several DVD burners at New Egg and many people claim that their burners don't read multi-disk games and some fail to read Crysis. I'll go ahead and buy the 27 dollar burner that kimsland posted or one similar to it; hopefully, it'll read just fine. I just want to make sure that I can play games like Crysis and still be able to burn DVD's. Thanks for the info.
