Hi there guys.
This is my first post but not the first visit here.
I am interested in the cd/dvd burning qualities brought on by the different combinations of medias and burner. As of now, i have two different drives.
A TDK CDRW523252BC. [TDK CyClone CD-R/RW & DVD Combo]
A TDK DVDRW1616N [TDK DVD 16+/- DVD Writer and Dual Layer Burner]
I usually burn normal CDS using my Cyclone drive and my dvds with the dvd writer. I don’t burn cds with the dvd writer. Ive always been burning music cds, archives and whatever and i usually wonder how long they last. I always thought that if i can just keep them scratch free, it would suffice.
But, i see that its not just a matter of storage. There are other issuesl ike the kind of media used and so on. So without talking so much, let me get to the main point of my post
When i go to the CD/DVD testing forums, i see that they always mention that the tools only work with lite-on drives. What do they exactly mean by lite-on drives? Isn’t that a particular brand of cd/dvd drives or is that some kind of a technical term?
I usually use TDK gold cds to burn normal cds and a wide range of DVD medias but that might change of i know the good combination. How am i supposed to know what kind of dyes cds/dvds use? What program is normally used to find that kind of info? Kprobe?
And lastly, are the drives that i have good or are they just mediocore? I am sorry if i have asked any questions previously asked by others. Thanks a lot in advance guys.
