I currently have a optiarc dvd+rw ad-5170s drive and want to know if I need to purchase a new drive or if this one will work. What one would people recommend in buying if my current drive doesnt work well, I will be burning 8.5gb dual layer cd's with it at 2x speed. Will the Samsung SH-S223C 22x SATA DVD RW Writer Burner be suitiable for this? I'd aprieciate it if anyone knows if I need a different drive and if I do which drive do you reccommend as long as it is relitivly cheap, thanks.

All current DVD+-RW drives should be able to burn DL media, - and + sort. Also note that you only think you are burning your DL media at 2x, but check your imgburn log. It is either changed to 2.4x or 4x depending on your drive and media. 2x is never actually a speed available for such media anyways.
