    Can you get a CD-RW that also serves as a DVD player?
    I want to get a DVD player for a new computer and I want to be able to rip CD's but I don't know if there are any units that actually serve as both. I was under the impression that a CD-RW can only doulbe as a CD player.

    Thanks Liam,
    are there any downsides to having an "all in one unit" as opposed to having two separate components (aside from the obvious of copying a store bought CD to a blank CD)?
    Also, it seems that the fastest DVD speed is 8x, is this an acceptable speed in todays standards?

    Only thing with a combo unit is that their are more "bits" to go wrong. I had a combo unit which failed so I'm biased. I replaced i with only a CDRW - I didn't watch DVD on my PC, and I don't think there's much software on DVD at the moment.
