I am a Newbie on Burning. A recommendation by a Forum Member caused me to buy a LiteOn 1693. This Forum lead me to DVDClone; AnyDVD; and CD Clone. May I say, "I am very Happy with the Forum and members."
My LiteOn works perfectly. Have burned Both +and- Memorex, Verbatim, and another that I have forgotten. No problems at all.
Have burned for all of our DVDs and CDs for backup. Not a failure one. A 2 hour movie will burn and write in about 28 minutes. I think the total was something like 56 disks.
I would say more but can't think of more praise.
I thank BigMile7 and others for their guidance. Couldn't be happier.
