On black friday, I picked up an I/O magic 16x dvd +/- R DL drive for a good price. Now the question is, will it operate in my system or should I just stock pile it with a few other non-obsolete pieces that I have been hoarding for my next build?
The system, which is frankly laughable in terms of slowness, is my 500mhz P3 Micron. I know that spec wise, I have seen some DVD burners that say they can function on a 500 mhz at slowest, this one claims 750 at slowest, 1.2ghz or faster recommended.
I would like to start using it, but dont want to install it if its not going to work/be worth the effort....so what does everyone think?
