Ok that is all i know about this Dual DVD burner. what I want to know is that is this a reliable dvdburner? I got it for $52USD New, I know well enough that a Dual DVD burner only sells for $52USD must have its reasons. But i don't know the reason, so anybody care to full me in the pros and cons of this burner? as long as i can get a year or year and half out of this thing everything should befine, (thinging of getting a Windows dual processor 64bit after that). please tell me anything and everything about this thing.
P.S I am thining of useing this dual burner to burn my ps2 games. I paid morthan $200USD for a slim external Pioneer dual burner and used it to burn about 30 games and it just die on me, got my money back though.

You got ripped off man (not unless you are in Canada or Australia). You can get an NEC or Pioneer for about the same price and they are 16x dual format burners in addition they support D/L burning (-R and +R). Check out www.newegg.com. That and there are plenty of firmware updates for both burners. BTW external burners tend to be more problematic so I wouldn't judge Pioneer burners by one bad external burner. I have had two solid burners from Pioneer (my old 105 and my current 109). *EDIT* NM you can get the NEC for cheaper and it will now support D/L DVD-R with a firmware update.
I thought all Dual Burners suport D/L burings? EDIT-- Does that mean this burner can't burn D/L DVDs? so no 8.5GB disk will work?
Nope, given the specs you have given, it won't burn D/L. Unless it actually says D/L in the specs then it isn't a double layer burner. Dual format does not equal double layer. Dual format simply means that it burns to both +R/+RW and -R/-RW. Double Layer is a whole different ball game. I would definitely ditch it if for no other reason than the other burners that I mentioned rank much higher for consumer opinions and the fact that there are so many firmware updates for them that allow them to do all sorts of nifty things.
