I’m fed up with my Asus drive. It’s given me loads of problems, and it’s time to dump it and buy something decent. After fighting with it for hours yesterday to get a firmware upgrade on, it’s started crapping out ripping on EAC, just like it did on my previous motherboard. It managed a CD and got 7 tracks into the next before it hit the skids, and currently it can’t even play a single track.
I’d previously bought it with no research…
I’ve now come to the conclusion that I don’t have the time, patience or nerves to deal with any nonsense from an optical drive any more, so I’ll buy my way out of the problem Ironically it had problems with not just one, but two completely different Asus motherboards… the company that ‘made’ the drive.
I’m not looking for the drive that burns the best quality - although it’ll need to be at least ‘decent’. What I’m looking for is a good all rounder that doesn’t spit the dummy because it’s on the same SATA channel as something else, or because it’s on AHCI mode or IDE mode, from a manufacturer that creates firmware upgrades that work…
In other words I want a problem free DVD burner.
I have zero interest in HD DVD.
Â£100 is the limit (and should be far far more than it needs).
Thanks, in advance!
