Sony Dilemma

Hi everyone

I am about to change my CD writer for a DVD one. I can get special prices for these 2 units the Sony DWU-10A and the Sony DRU-510A. There is a price difference between the two, the DWU-10A being the cheapest. I will be using the writer mainly to record my own home video productions. Any help would be appreciated.

They are apparently the same drive, with the DWU-10A being the OEM version of Sony DRU-500AX & 510A. From my casual observations, the "OEM" version means it's a "bare drive", which doesn't include all of the software and the official Sony box .
You'll need a DVD burner program such as Nero. If you're into DVD authoring, you'll need a video editing package that can produce DVD images.
