started getting format ,read/write problems with my 52x/24/52 liteon cdrw and it would only boot into pio mode. I had it 2 years and burnt 150 cds, and played many games so I guess it is finished..
What is normal life of a cdrw drive and what drive replacement do you recommend.
I have also have a tdk velo cdrw drive 4800b speed is 48X (16/24) x48 which was put into storge when I had bought the liteon and still works good so how much speed am I loosing if I kept this drive vs buying a new a 52x drive. I also have a 2nd drive installed a sony dru 720a dvd +/- rewritable(2nd bay)
