I would like to buy two DVD Rewritable players. Is there a big different between SATA and IDE players? I was looking at PIoneer or LG.

Thanks

Greetings Bushisland

No advantage in one over the other at this point for performance. Burning/playback speeds have not overwhelmed IDE Technology.

Other reasons to choose one over the other is air flow in the case, Ide cable is wide, sata cable is narrow.

Installing a os into a computer that does not support sata Optical drives natively, such as XP, points to using IDE or using other methods for providing drivers for sata devices.

Having no ide headers left but plenty of sata headers availible.

Your choice.

Regards
