advice needed on DVD RW

  sunny staines 20:52 27 Jul 08

Looking for a new DVD RW for the desktop but need one that runs well in vista and if poss has some decent oem software thrown in.

a lot of players do not have vista listed as being compatible, and more makes do not say either way, already.

anyone got one with vista they are impressed with?

Apart from the basic Windows optical drive driver, the functions of a rewriter are controlled by software such as Nero.

That is why such software is regularly updated to accommodate newer models.
