    I had pretty much come to the conclusion that you couldn’t buy a DVD/CD burner anymore that lasted more than a few hundred burns before it burned itself out. I’ve bought LG, Samsung, Sony, HP, and a few others and they would all start having problems after burning 300-400 discs.

    I’ve had this drive for several months now and have burned about 800 CD and DVDs and it is still going strong. None of the problems I’ve had with other drives not reading a certain format of disc or a certain disc type, while it would still read others.

    A few of the other drives I’ve had, got where they would only burn CDs and wouldn’t burn DVDs. Others would do just the opposite. This drive will still burn any kind of disc and any format with no problems. It might die tomorrow but this is the best drive I’ve bought in years.

    The only down side to this drive and the reason I only gave it 4 stars, is that it has something built into the firmware that does not allow a CD or DVD encryption breaking program to run. If you have it installed and try to use the drive it locks up your computer.

    Using it on a Windows XP computer. No problems installing, no problems burning, burn speeds are great. Overall a great value and a great burner.

    Asus 24xDVD±RW Drive DVD-RAM/±R/±RW 24x8x16x(DVD) 48x32x48x(CD) Serial ATA Internal OEM DRW-24B1ST (Black)I have had mixed success with other hardware that Microsoft Web site says will install on Windows 7 64bit. I was pleased that this DVD Writer installed automatically. It initially worked perfectly. However, I only use the DVD Writer occasionally to rip CDs, burn movies and install software, and I used this drive about 30 times when it stopped working. Now it will not open or close. All it does is hum for a few seconds when the computer boots up and when the button is pressed. To add to that, ASUS did not reply to my e-mail about the problem. My initial 5 star rating is now 1 star.
