I need a new burner that reliably works with CMC MAG AE1 & E01 media.
These media are used extensively in inexpensive 8x rebranded offerings (HP, Staples, Teon, etc.) and I go through quite a lot of them in archiving short-term data sets. I'm currently using NEC ND 2510A, but would like to upgrade to something faster (the NEC takes 10 minutes, using ZCLV).
I've already tried the NEC 3540 with very unreliable/inconsistent results using these media. I'm short-term archiving research data, so media longevity isn't a real concern, but ability to burn these low cost media without erroring out, is!
I'd greatly appreciate your thoughts on this; is the 1640 right for me?
Thanks in advance for your input/advice!
