Need a new cd/dvd drive

When I built a new PC a year ago I just stuck in a Bluray recorder instead of just a DVD burner.   Mostly no problem, but I have found at least one video disk I made (MP4 I think) that simply refuses to play on that drive, even though it works fine on regular DVD drives/burners in other PC's.

Not sure if that's a warning or just some bug I haven't pinned down.   Just throwing it out there that bluray drives are a choice, and they are a lot cheaper now than a few years ago.

Otherwise, just shell out $20 for a generic DVD burner.   If you're worried about reliability long term, buy a spare.   It's only about $20, after all.
