THe Plextor 24x Writer review at CDRinfo has deflated me somewhat. Having the best of EVERYTHING on the CloneCD compatibility list, it's gone and screwed up in a number of tests. Although it does everything it was meant to do, it seems to have a lot of problems involving media types, strange seeing as it's got POWEREC II, which along with Philips' TBW seems to be a new fad amongst the manufacturers. Secondly it seems to have been castrated by having no support for Fast Error Skipping?? ( i would guess) as it takes an hour to make a CloneCD image, and the review states this as extremely poor because of the Plextor 16x Writer can do this is 2 minutes! However hope and optimism in the form of a firmware from Plextor.. Btw, what is the name of the feature (technically or whatever) to do with Fast Error Skipping or whatever it is that makes CloneCD imaging of Copy Protected CDs such a bastard? And any reason why the Plextor 24x may have this problem??
