Hi nhcuong,

DVD (digital versatile disk) is the "next-generation" of CD. It's much bigger (how big depends on the subformat) and they're working on rewriteables. However the standards aren't totally finished yet. And there's another disadvantage: movies on DVD come with a country-code, so you won't be able to watch e.g. american ones in asia.
The second part of your question: EIDE means extended IDE
(IDE is dead)
afaik (NO Flames!) there are only SCSI-DVD-Drives, but I'm not sure.

hope that helps
