I’ve just bought a Plextor PX-755UF to replace a 5 year old Freecom external CD burner (I think the model is titled 8432). Yes, only just got to the DVD recorder age .
Which drive would likely be best for burning CD media please? The old Freecom will burn at 1x speed, which the PX-755UF seems not to (at least, I didn’t see this listed), and I have read in the past that burning as slowly as possible is the best bet. However, I have also been told that with modern drives burning at the stated speed (eg if this were DVDs in the PX-755UF I should stick with 16x) gives the best results. Plus, the PX-755UF has buffer protection and other fancy stuff that the Freecom lacks. But then it is a DVD recorder, not specifically a CD recorder.
Of course, I’m going to try burning to both and then run the efforts through Plextools, but just wondering what people think .
All the best!
