Hi all Software Engineers, We have a MACintosh laptop (MACBOOK) which dont have an inbuilt DVD writer. We would like to buy an external DVD writer for the same. We called the apple store. But unfortunately they dont have it in stock. One more company called LACIE (lacie.com) is manufacturing the writer. But it is only 8x speed. Now my question is - most of the DVDs will have the writing speed of 16x. Is it ok , if we buy a 8x speed writer ? What about the speed of writing ?
