I have a couple questions about my current rig and how to put everything to its best use. Please don’t let the length of my post scare you. I think I’ve just asked a bunch of simple questions in a very meticulously-worded fashion, that’s all.
I currently have these drives:
Sony DRU-810A @ BenQ DW1640 BSLB - thank you to all that helped and provided guides for crossflashing:bow:
Pioneer DVR-111D - this one’s getting some Buffalo action as soon as it arrives
I read in a couple of threads that my particular Liteon ROM drive is a good reader. Problem is, I find it’s slow as molasses compared to my speed-patched DW1640. Plus, there’s a handful of audio CDs that the Litey wouldn’t rip very well but the BenQ would. I was thinking of selling the Litey; is it worth keeping? Are either of my other drives as good of a reader or better? Or, going even further, is there a Litey burner that trumps all in terms of reading/ripping/salvaging? I want the best of the best.
By the looks of some the great scans I’ve been seeing on the forums, the DVR-111 is going to be hands down my Verbatim 2.4x DVD+R DL MKM001 burner. So, what’s the general consensus on which speed to use, if I want to use one of the “faster” ones? 6x or 8x? I could burn some for fun and do some scans, but with the price of these discs, I’d rather take your word for it.
- Which burner for TY CD-R? My BenQ, my Pio or the Litey that you’re gonna recommend me from question #1?
