Last weekend I went to Fry’s Electronics with my dad to buy a 24x10x40 writer that was on sale (Que! writer).
When we went there, I asked the representatives about what engine it uses from what company and they said “All kinds of engines.” Well, I couldn’t get any info about that.
Then I asked them about what writing modes it supports and they look at the box, hesitate for a moment, and reply in a dumbfounded way, “CD-R and CD-RW.”
I am trying to get them to let me know if it copies protected CD’s without giving away that I pirate software. So I ask them if it can write uncorrected data and subchannels. Now there’s about 6 people trying to answer my questions and not a single arsehole knows what they’re or I’m talking about. They say, “You need to get one of the oldest writers to write uncorrected CDs”
I am frustrated so I give them the whole loaf: “Can it copy SafeDisc 2 protected CD’s?” I’m pretty sure they dont know but they start by replying “We’re not allowed to legally tell you that information.” Of course, they have no clue. Then they start saying “You can use cracks. You can find them at astalavista.box.sk” and other stuff which I’m sure is illegal.
So they don’t want to tell me what it can backup, but they are ready to give away crack sites. These people aren’t qualified to work there!
I’m pretty sure that they were intimidated since a 14-year-old boy (me) knew more than any of them put together.
So I took the writer home. It supports RAW-DAO and all protections BUT it doesn’t support SafeDisc 2 (I have to use AWS).
It has “JUSTLINK” feature. I want to know what engine this writer runs on so if anybody can tell me what “JUSTLINK” is usually contained in, I would be thankful.
I am pretty sure it is a rebadged “Ricoh”
