[QUOTE=Kerry56;2683876]I’m afraid I don’t know anything about that external Samsung drive. I’ve had no problems with my internal Samsung dvd burner, but you can’t extrapolate experience from one drive to the next with much accuracy. Sometimes in the same family of drives, that works, but it doesn’t always hold true even on drives that are very similar. Firmware differences can play a role. (that’s a very wordy reply meaning I don’t know if it will be adequate for what you want to do).
Should be fine, but no guarantees.
There were some issues found in the Lite-on blu ray burners and burning cds. I would avoid them, if your main use will be with cd media. Stick with the Pioneer or LG blu ray drives. I have a much older LG blu ray burner and a fairly new Pioneer 207MBK, and haven’t had any problems burning cds. [B]But I burn perhaps four or five cds in a year and always use the very best discs, which are Taiyo Yuden.[/B][/QUOTE]
thanks again… actually that would be pretty much my last question. I have a few rather rare & expensive music CDs and I would like to make back ups. Some people say I should spend the extra money and buy Gold Archival Mam-A, others say TY are fine. What’s your take on this ?
Longevity is important, but TY say 100 years which if true, would be enough haha…
