What I do not understand is this:
Lite-On has a feature called Smart-Burn on their drives that can read wich "brand" of CD-rom is in the burner, and based on that information it decides how to burn the CD (correct me if I am wrong).
This sounds like a usefull feature, but one would expect that LITE-ON would deliver a list with CD-Râ€™s that are recognized by this smart-burn feature (or compatible with their drives). Even more because of the fact that the F/W updates in almost all cases includes support for more Media. So they must have lists with media supported by this Smart-Burn feature. But I cannot find them; Isnâ€™t that strange, what do you think about that? Or am I just to stupid to find them? Or do I not understand what smart-burn is doing, in stead of recognizing the CD, and in which factory it is made?
To narrow this question to my situation. I am thinking about buying cd-rom from shop.cdfreaks.com, but they sell two brands that are European (HI-SPACE and DATATRACK). I do not know if these brands, that are coming from European factories, are recognised by Smart Burn. The other thing is that there are a lot of threads about different media, but almost never about these two brands, or more important: about the factories who manufacture these CDâ€™s (MPO and Plasmon Data Systems); so can anyone give me more information on those brands and even better: those brands in combination with LITE-ON drives. I have the Lite â€“On LTR-32125W.
I posted this question in two forums: Lite-on-forum and media-forum, because I think they fit in both. Sorry if that is a problem.
