Wot burner have you got ? [/B]

I had a 12X Philips PCRW1208 which I sold because I got a new 24X
QPS CRD-BP1500P (re-badged Sanyo) in September and had four CD-RW drives at that point.

I now have three burners:
a Philips 2X CDD-3610 from 1998
a 24X QPS CRD-BP1500P, with Sanyo firmware 6.38 (works great )
a 4X external Philips PCRW464K (USB version of PCRW404)

I may upgrade to a 40 or 48 speed CD burner, since I burn
quite frequently, and my free time is valuable.

I will buy a DVD+RW drive as soon as the long-awaited 2nd generation that supports the write-once DVD+R (and not just the DVD+RW discs) comes out.
(I bought one and returned it when it became apparent
that the first generation would probably not support DVD+R).
