A little bug, not much larger than a pinhead, found its way into my CD drive and shot it to pieces (Sacrificing one CD and its life in the process. RIP), so I figure if I have to replace it I might as well go for a DVD recorder while I'm at it.
Any recommendations? I'm not looking for the latest, fastest tech., I'm looking for something that runs reliably and with no compatibility problems with Linux, so if you want to recommend something that's slow and two years old but just plugs in and works, go ahead.
I'm currently using Mandrake 9.1, if that makes a difference. Come to think of it, I have the discs all ready to update to 2005LE when it's installed if that also makes a difference
and... I'm not planning on downloading pirate movies, far more likely to just use it for backups and making the occasional CD from my (Legit. Really!)8) Mp3 collection.
