Im having a hard time pick a new DVD Burner.
My Optiarc AD-5170A is no longer working good. he cannot recognize some of the media and burn them.
i need a new one.
i will tell u what im doing with my burner (the most important) that way can know what burner is recommended for me:
- a lot of audio rips (Original CDs and DVDs from 1994 till now) with EAC (Secure Mode) with Accurate Stream and C2 Error Correcting.
*Video Decrypting with DVD Decrypter/DVDFab
*Burning Data/PS2/ISO Games and APPs on DVD+R and DVD-R on various media.
*Burning Audio on CDR on various media.
The bad thing on my burner are:
*my current burner did rip audio very well most of the time but sometimes very slow.
*the burning wasnt good (1/4 of the time the burned cds/dvds had a alot of errors that cannot be fixed.
*very very noisy.
*verfiying after burning with Nero has failed a lot of times.
*seek times are not good.
*very picky about media.
The new drive need to have those:
*an option to change the booktype from DVD+R and DVD+R DL to DVD-ROM/RAM. (Must)
*a LightScribe option (Recommended).
*can report C2 Errors for Audio (Must).
*Fast DVD Decrypting (very Recommended).
*Deep Error Scan with Nero CD-DVD Speed and KProbe.
tnx from advance to the freaks of CDFREAKS!
