    Pioneer A09 or 109 dvd burners come highly recommended. I use the 109 myself and so far i have had no problems. It is an excellent drive and I got it for cheap .

    At present I would stay away from the Sonys as they are basically rebadged liteon's.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    Any more, most dvd burners are supported in Linux. I've yet to pick one up that's NOT supported hardware, and I've gone through a good 8 of 'em in the past year (I wear 'em out quick).

    If you're looking to do a lot of dvd burning, though, sadly, Windows is your best option. There's too many problems with burning and copying dvds in Linux from what I've seen in the past.

    I've had good results with Plextor drives, but you'll usually pay more for them than you would for most other drives. Don't be afraid of DVD burning in Linux because it can do anything Windows can do, although the method might not always be as apparent as it is from within "point and click" Windows.
