Do you trust laptops DVD-RWs ??





ciureanuc
Hello,

I just bought my first laptop and I have a question: do you trust DVD-RWs of this machines?
I don't know, maybe I am old-fashioned, maybe I trust a heavy tool...

I am wondering if I should transfer all my files on the desktop computer and to use that "classic" DVD writer...

Well,
Do you trust laptops DVD-RWs ??


Thanks!

Sure, why not? Actually, I've never had a notebook drive fail on me, but I have had two desktop drives fail. I've burned quite a few CDs and DVDs on my laptop and it worked just fine. However, it's a lot noisier than my desktop drives.

You should be fine, unless you have a really bad drive in your notebook.

My laptop is a new Toshiba A200 with a Matshita UJ-850S in it.
I intend to use Verbatim DVDs; my "desktop DVD" is an LG 4167 (never broke a DVD).

Well?

Tx!

Ditto. What I meant is that if you had a very low quality drive, be notebook, or desktop, you could have problems. Like I said, I've had two drives fail on me, neither one was of any decent quality, and both were Samsungs. You should be fine.

And did you mean if a notebook drive will cause damage to the disk itself? If so, then you'll be perfectly fine...that is unless you toss your laptop around with the disks inside.

So don't worry, you will be fine.

I don't see any reason why the laptop drive should be a problem.... if you're really worried, you could always use burning software that has a verification option. Then you'll know that the burn completed successfully.

I was thinking only about the... you know, the laptops seem so fragile! Smile
40Gb means only 10 DVDs... I will try the laptop hardware.
Thanks for your replies.
