Burners that can overburn

vbimport

#1

I joined this board only to get help with this. I’m looking to buy a new burner, but I want one that can burn more than 83 minutes and still burn at 36x or higher. I have a few pages of burners I’m looking at. Plus, I’m not looking to pay more than $50.

If you could please help, that’d be great. Maybe someone has a list of burners able to overburn more than 83 minutes or whatever. Does it deal with the cd or what? I only have 80 minute cds, but I’m just unsure how this overburning works, but since I have a movie thats 83 minutes and 29 seconds, it would help a lot. Thanks.

What about a 52 speed Liteon , can do practically anything.

Or , for some more money , an AsusTek or a Plextor.

Don’t need that refurbished stuff.

So that one should be good? Right now, I have a 8x, it came in my HP(which i wish i just would have built my own computer), its a Teac cd-w58e and well, it sucks.

I would buy from a more trust worthy site like Newegg.com. They also have the Lite-On LTR-52246S OEM for $46, comes w/ full version Nero and audio cable. No tax if you don’t live in Cali. Shipping is $6, but that’s 'cause they ship 3 day fedex express saver.

First off, I dont use newegg.com. I use pricewatch.com. WAY better if you ask me. Secondly, if you look on the newegg page, it says NO for instock. Doesnt help me much with it not being in does it. Finally, on the site I showed, they have the exact same thing as on newegg.com, deal and all. Plus, I have nero as it is.

newegg and pricewatch are entirely different things, so u can’t even put them in the same category, let alone suggest that one is “WAY better” than the other. newegg is an online retailer, while pricewatch is a price search engine.

also, Stoner didn’t suggest newegg cuz of the price, he suggested it cuz it’s a more trustworthy site, and the drive could’ve still been in stock when he posted the link for u.

Hey man, don’t get all up in my face. It was just a suggestion, whether you take it or not is entirely up to you, 'cause if you got hoax, it’s your money. 'nuff said.

Thnx for the backup once again AZ.
