Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

While I can’t speak for anyone else, I’ve had nothing but trouble when trying to use re-write CDs & DVDs. So, while we, at my site, have a few drives capable of re-writing, I never use the option and if anyone asks about it I tell them to stay away from it. Not worth the hasssle with tempermental machines.

I’d buy one and test it to see how it works. Then, if it works to your satisfaction, purchase the bulk of the PCs and their optical drives.

Hope this helps.

    I can only speak for myself but I've had nothing but trouble with trying to do rw on CDs or DVDs. We have several drives capable of rw at my site but I never use the option and if anyone asks I tell them to stay away from it. It's not worth the hassle. What I would try is the purchase of a single drive for each type (I'd only test the rw part, everyone knows single function cds and DVDs work. Test them to see if they suit your needs and then buy the bulk of the machines as testing dictates. Hope this helps.

    The only advantage of a CD-RW over a CD-R is the ability to write over data that's on the CD.. however, a CD-RW disk won't work on a normal CD-ROM drive.
