Question about Gear Head 8XDVDEXT DVD External Slim Burner - DVD+/-R 8X, DVD-RAM 6X, DVD+/-R DL 6X, CD-R 24X Burner

1 Answer

I don't suppose you know where I can find the Windows 7 64 bit signed driver for Gear Head Litescribe 24x DVD Tripple Format SATA writer? Gear Head has been nonresponsive. I am attempting to Install Windows 7 Ultimate from this DVD Writer and 64 Bit Windows 7 will not load the existing driver. 64 bit Windows is very strict on the Win7 signed drivers. There are not any Optical Drive downloads at the Gear Head website and they have not yet returned my email or phone call.

Can my CD-RW/DVD Rom Drive, model # GCC4320B be replaced with a hp 24x Multiformat DVD/CD Writer, dvd 1270i . I bought this unit today, but the connections don't match up? I truely appreciate your time and...

This model DVD/CD writer is a SATA drive and unless your motherboard has a SATA connector then you have a slight problem. You will need to purchase a SATA controller and install it into your PCI expansion slot, then connect your new DVD/CD drive to this SATA controller. You will also need a SATA adapter power cable converter which plugs into the 4 pin power connector.

Is this good for a new gaming rig im gonna build motherboard: Gigabyte 790XTA-UD4 Motherboard cpu:AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Quad Core video card: XFX Radeon HD 5850 Black Edition...


I searched the internet and also from my experience can tell that this system is quite good. This system has all what is required by the latest gaming titles to run flawlessly.

If I would be pinpointing small issues then only would find that the hard drive needs to be at least 1 terabyte nothing else to complain.

In my opinion its quite a 'heavy' system and will sure give you an edge in modern multiplayer gaming over the internet where performance is the key to success.

Just a reminder that you should use 64 bit version of Windows on this system as a 32 bit system will not be able to use the 4GB RAM. A 64 bit system will better use the resources and you can upgrade to a higher amount if needed.

If you install a 32 bit OS it will show the total RAM as 2.5 GB and rest will be wasted. Windows 7 64 bit will be the best choice as it supports multithread, multicore CPUs and advanced graphics with DirectX 10/11.

In short I can say that this system is very much adequate for todays software/games and possibly future proof upto two years for extreme gaming. Also you can move to a better graphics card and more RAM when required. And be sure to use a adequately rated UPS/surge protector.

Gear Head Lightscribe 24x DVD+/-R Triple Format SATA

Your original CDROM drive is likely an IDE interface (large rectangular connector), where as the new one is a SATA interface (small narrow connector). If your original is an IDE, the simplest solution is to return the SATA and purchase an IDE DVD.
