My old Yamaha CRW3200E writer done its work perfect, but nowadays it got some problems with new high speed media (also with HQ media like TY/Plextor).
Would be nice if you give me some hints and trust me - I'm not searching for ANY writer, because then I would not spam in here. I'm a little perfectionist, so be patient with me :bigsmile:
*) PERFECT audio writing (I'm archiving the CDs - live concerts)
*) Speed is NOT important - only the error rate (zero ? :p)
*) 90 / 99 min. Media should be writeable
*) The drive should not have major problems with copy protected CDs
*) CD-RW, Mount Rainer, Audio Master Quality Recording is not important.
[AGAIN: Errorless audio writing is the major requirement]
I "learnt" to burn as slow as possible (that was ages ago and correct). Nowadays I read more and more, that I shouldn't whine when a writer can't burn lower than 8x, but I'm still skeptic if overburning at 8x is as errorless like with 2x or 4x ?!? What do the specialists think? If it helps - I'm currently using TY branded Plextor 48x blanks and also got some old school 24x Verbatim Data Life Plus, Super Azo discs.
Thanks for all hints,
PS: What does the community think about the Mitsumi CR-485GTE CD-ReWriter?
