It is so important to backup data, such as precious photographs and videos and an external DVD burner is a perfect way of getting absolute piece of mind. The DVD burner works by burning information onto a disc via a laser, which creates small pits that store the information being burned. Excellent for photos, videos, music and other important data, DVD burners are either external (like the ones we sell) or can be fixed into a PC or Mac, but due to this equipment becoming more and more compact, a burner is often left out. An external DVD burner is extremely versatile as it is very portable and is usually powered by a USB cable, so no need for extra cables, that get caught in .................. well everything!! Compact and lightweight, as well as being very slim, it can be taken most places which is particularly useful for professional photographers.
