Personally, I have always had great results from LG optical drives. My frustration has been lack of firmware support, but since I don't burn many discs these days it is not a major concern. I just use the drives as readers/rippers. LG drives are riplocked by default, but they do perform well. That said, the Optiarc drives are pretty good. I never went with the 7260 but have a couple 7240's collecting dust somewhere. At the time they were probably the best overall choice for a all purpose burner. Suspect that is the case with the 7260 as well.

Sometimes... Yes . But you are right, LG drives are usually damn good burners out of the gate. I had been critical of them in the past that they just released a new model, but that kept MFG going I guess... Now if BenQ and Plextor did that, they might still be around today... Still got some Plextors (PX-716A & PX-755SA) and BenQ'S (DW1620's & DW1640's) in storage... not sure why. I will never use them again. Retired my old nForce2 rigs recently too. Time to get rid of that stuff.
thanks a lot IAN the dvd-rw read and write impeccable!!!!!! y want software free for burn(i don,t like nero is cost money and is big pig ).which is better:Imgburn,infrarecorder or another? p.s. very nice you boy in avatar
Another ImgBurn vote, but I did purchase Nero for Linux and like using that alot. Not as bloated with stuff I don't need or want. That said I suspect Nero Linux is going end of life since it has not been updated in a long time. Lack of interest I suspect. Most people use Brasero or K3b there anyway. I was always used to the classic Nero interface and the Linux version was worth the 10 bucks or so I paid for it.
