That's a difficult one. I have the LG GSA4163 Dual Layer multi format burner.

Haven't seen it for less than £36 though and comes with no software whatsoever. You can buy Nero 6 for £3.49 plus postage from click here

Some more from: click here

some within your price range but not all are multi format.

Same drive as pj123's first link but look at the price click here

Definitely recommend LG to get DVD-RAM capability. ebuyer, scan etc have it for similar price as woodchip's link (plus postage).

also brand new Pioneer 110 on same page.

You will be unlikely to get a DVD rewriter and Nero at your price level as you are weighing up OEM drives; the saving on a retail version should cover the basic cost of Nero or use one of the freeware alternatives.

I've just bought a NEC3540A (16x) DVD writer (with dual layer capability) from SVP for £30.
They also do an OEM Nero 6 disc for about £3.50.
-Very good service from this company.

thanks guys

sorry - stupid question. can you only use dual layer dvd rw disks in dual layer dvd rw drive or can you also use normal dvd rw disks?

You can use both but with the LG GSA 4163 you can also use dvd-ram (which is better than rw). This LG drive is a collaboration with Hitachi.
