- What firmware ?
I’m currently using the latest T9. Some people expressed their preference for P9 or even the older M9. What firmware are you using ?
- What software ?
So far I’ve only used the included RecordNow for data backups and I’m currently trying out DVD Decrypter to backup DVD5 discs in ISO mode. I like the ripping but I’m not sure if this software is very reliable for burning. What burning software do you use with the DW1620 ?
- What media ?
I’ve read several posts in the media section and the media topic but came to no conclusions whatsoever. Right now I’m doing my own testing with several different brands using DVD Decrypter to burn (and those results are what make me suspicious about DVD Decrypter burning reliability, too).
