I have essentially built a new system out of an old eMachine. Now the only thing left are the DVD ROM and CD burner. I would like to replace one with a good combo dual layer burner. What is the logic here? The DVD ROM always ejects but sometimes require a little nudge to finish closing. Would it be best to keep the DVD ROM or the CD burner? Then, what brand or specific model DVD combo drive have people had good experiences with? The machine would be described as a business machine

Combo drives ( CD burner + DVD ROM ) are rarely seen outside of prebuilt machines. DVD burners are so cheap now there is no reason not to just buy one of those. Personally I would use the current drive until it dies ( which might not be very long ). Here is an example of a DVD burner: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16827136117. SATA models have became very cheap as well.
