I am wondering if it is a good or bad idea to use the “on the fly” feature when backing up a CD using two Plextor drives.
My computer has a Plextor 712 and a Plextor 716. I use audio error detection when backing up a CD with Plextools.
Is there any reason to believe that an “on the fly” copy may sometimes be less than 100% perfect compared to a copy made from the hard drive? Or will either method be 100% perfect, as long as two Plextor drives and audio error detection are used?
If either method will work equally well, it seems to me using “on the fly” would be faster and would not put as much wear on the hard drive.
A 2nd question: is there any way to “verify” a CD backup to the original with Plextools? Or must you buy the professional version of Plextools to do that?
