Default Advantages of having 2 DVD Drives?

I've seen people posting their specs and what-not and noticed that some people hav a DVD Burner and a DVD-Rom, is there really any advantage of having 2?

Intead of copying an image from a dvd on to your hard drive then burning it to a backup dvd, you can just copy directly from the original dvd to the back up dvd. Also, with some games and applications running 2-5 disks for install, you're going to start seeing a lot more stuff coming on a single dvd.

Yep. Same reason they invented the dual-cassette-deck.

Oh, and fix yer sig before a mod nails you to the wall.
