I have a simple question - what is the local "going rate" for a
single/dual layer internal DVD burner for a laptop? (local is Northern
VA) ASked another way - is $85 too much for an internal laptop DVD
Why you ask??? I bought a nice 100GB 7200 RPM disk for my laptop. I
swear Rosanne Rosanadana is up there laughing her %$^%$*^^W%Q off at me.
The blasted internal DVD drive won't work. I kinda forgot that there
might be a problem since I have an external dual layer DVD burner ....
My intent was to install FC6 & either openSuSe 10.2 or SuSe Linux
Enterprise Desktop. <whining> But 'ol Rosanna she's gettin' a good
chuckle since I can't seem to boot off the external DVD drive! Yes ...
I changed the BIOS settings - USB storage device is what is listed. I
burned a mini-CD to boot OpenSuse 10.2 from the net but Rosanna just
thumbed sumpin' at me!! </whining>
So, since I just spent $150 for the new drive, I checked on a DVD
drive ... WOW!! $85! AND IT AIN'T DUAL LAYER?!?!?! The guy (Austin
Tech in Sterling) had an old Dell desktop with XP Pro, 256/512 RAM, ....
for $199 - between the new drive and DVD drive - I'd be more than that!
For those who don't know Rosanne Rosanadana ... check out
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilda_Radner. She had me in stitches all
the time. Shame she's only with in memories ... 8-( .... and DVDs! 8-)
