I am trying to decide between two burners and I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions.
Burrner no. 1 is a Yamaha CRW2100SZ, ( http://www.yamaha.com/cgi-win/webcgi.exe/Specs/?gHDR00007CRW2100SZ ). I prefer this one because it is scsi and has an 8 meg buffer.
Burrner no. 2 is a Plextor 24X10X40 CD-RW IDE, (http://www.plextor.com/english/products/24_10_40A.html ). Most of the people on this forum seem to prefer this drive. I did notice that the buffer is smaller, (4 meg).
I will be using the burrner for backing up games that my son and I both play. Most seem to have Safedisc 2 protection.
My current system is as follows:
Motherboard is a Abit KT7 with an AMD Thunderbird 1.2
Creative 52x cd player
Yamaha 8x8x24 CD-RW, (scsi)
Maxtor 30 gig ATA 100
2 IBM 9 gig scsi drives
512 megs of ram
Any advice would be appreciated.
p.s. Does any one out there have any suggestion on a DVD drive for reading cd imagesÃ‰
