Hi folks, curious what is a drive you’d recommend for disc scanning. I have hundreds of archived DVDs that I scan on occasion to be sure the data is secure.
I’ve been out of the loop for years. I recently purchased a used DW-1620 in hopes of using to scan discs, however it causes system hangs when I try to erase or record any DVD. Seems to do okay with CDs, and also scans DVDs okay. I suppose I could use it as a scanner only, but would be nice if I could burn DVDs with it. I think it’s probably the IDE controller I have (older PCI card) and/or outdated drivers for Windows 10; probably not the drive at fault.
That said, I’'d like to replace it with a Blu-Ray or good DVD drive that has scanning capabilities in CD Speed / Diskspeed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Sure wish I could get the Benq to work, those really were good scanning drives, and the DW1620 has the additional “feature” of a red writing LED indicator
