Hello, this is my first post on this forum
I cannot find the cdrw that I am looking for. I want both the ability to to rip protected audio cd’s and make backups of safedisc protected cd roms. Even if there exist some workarounds like clonecd’s aws for teac and plextor and rumors of lite-on firmware vs08 reading protected audio cds, it really looks like no vendors is offering both.
I see two solutions which I need some advices on:
Buying a cheap cdr that can handle protected audio cd’s (Does such readers exist ?) and a lite-on/tdk cyclone for correct EFM writing.
I suppose it is just a matter of time(one year or so) before I will buy a DVDrw. Does anyone have an idea of what these writers are most likely to support, correct EFM or protected audio cd reading, or both. This will influence my choice of cdrw now.
On my shortlist:
Teac 540 at 93$
TDK cyclone 482448 at 97$
Lite-on 522452/401248 at 97$/71$
Plextor 401240 at 123$
plex 482448 and Yamaha 441644 both 160$ are exluded from shortlist because of price compared to upcoming DVDrw’s
