This is strange, seeing about that other post… I have just got 2 new DVD drives in a ‘lucky dip’ sort of thing and one is a Pioneer DVR-112D and the other is an Optiarc DVD RW AD-5170A, I have just put in the Optiarc to give it a run thru.
The problem is that I want to keep the CDR drive because I do a bit of music with this, and I like the Asus for it so I dont know which one to keep in this box, the other drive is going to go in another computer, but I dont do a lot of my own work with it so IMO it will be a pain using it.
It will be in with the LG H42N which I will use for writing… unless one of these is a much better burner ?
The Optiarc can do 8 EEC quality scanning, can the Pio do any QS ?
I could always move my Hdds around and then run both with a ODD and a HDD on the primary PATA but it would be with a quick 'ish hard disk and I dont to put a ODD on with that.
There is also that fact that I work with Verbatim and TY disks for the most, so if one can work better with them… or not its another mark.
Any other info, ideas and or input from you people would be a help
