I am new to the forum. I have recently been afflicted with this obsession of backing up by DVDs, moving my video to DVDs etc.
I have skimmed these forums and the amount of knowledge here is astounding.
I will start with basic questions, if someone has the time. I just got a replacement drive from Dell. Its a Sony/NEC AD-5170S.
I guess my only questions are:
- Best media to use to avoid the coasters
- Should I adjust, mod or otherwise change my drive.
A lot of the things I have seen on the forums are pretty “tech” intensive. While I have 25 years in the computing/networking business, the specifics of how DVD and CD Drives work has not been my speciality.
If there are newbie guides of what to look for or maybe what the graphs mean associated with the specilized Flash Files located here… ect.
Any help, suggestions to a noob like me are appreciated. I hope, in time, I can help others.
