|Another use for the CD burner is to keep a disk in there always for Nero InCD or what I use, Roxio Drag to disk. Both those programs are packet writers. Very handy for instant backup of your personal files. |
The purpose in leaving it in there is because ejecting a formatted disk requires the program to close the session. That takes a minute or so. You might not use the packet writer if you had to eject disks constantly.
I run THREE optical drives in my full tower. Also running TWO SATA II hard drives plus an external USB.
Backup, backup, backup.
