Hi everybody,

I have a question:

Witch drive is better to have, a samsung or a philips? Me and my brother both have an xbox.

My brothers samsung drive reads:
DVD-R (all of em)
DVD+R (none of em)
CD-R (all of em)

I have a philips drive that reads:
DVD-R (all of em, somethimes with movies while skipping chapters he shocks long)
DVD+R (all of em)
CD-R (only some brands)

Now is my question, does anyone has experience with both drives. And can this person tell me witch one is best to have. Because now I still can trade my xbox.

The problem is, with my philips drive doesn't read al DVD-R as good as the Samsung wink.gif
With movie playback it takes a hole lot of time before he skips the chapter. Somethimes it even hangs. When I test it on my brothers xbox, there ar no problems mad.gif
