Do I need a zip drive AND a CD-re-writable?
Posted on 2001-06-21
Hi. I'm buying a laptop very soon, and want to be able to back up my data. I will definitely be buying a re-writable/recordable CD unit, but do I also need a zip drive (is a superdisk drive the same thing?)
Can I easily record data such as .doc .jpg .mpg etc onto a CD using that unit, and retrieve it/restore it as I need to (which hopefully I wont)???
Does the CD unit make the zip drive obsolete?
Is there anything I would be missing out on if I DON'T buy a zip drive??
I am NOT an expert with computers at all, so standard layman's language for answers, please.
Thanks in advance.
