[QUOTE=EscapeVelocity;2035405]Hey there Arachne.
I just did my first burn!
HP 840e (I think its an LG 4166 or something), Superbit Edition Fifth Element, CloneDVD and AnyDVD, 67% reduction in data(I dont know the proper terminology). TY DVD-R media. Still working on acquiring knowledge and terminology, but it looks great played back on my Vizio GV42LF via an Oppo 970. I cut out the FBI warning and another little clip, it goes straight to the menus. Im gonna try to scan it next, I guess. (Steep learning curve.)
Anyways, Im looking at getting
Samung External…still researching.
and maybe a LiteOn 5239S external CD burner. What can you tell me about that, I see you have one in your list?
Plextor looks complicated with its Plextools. I dunno.
Woohoo, sounds like you’re doing good so far
You won’t be able to scan with the HP/LG (as you probably know), but the 165P6SX/160P6S will be excellent scanners at 8x.
As for the Litey CD-RW…it’s a really good drive for scanning CDR/RW media (as the Litey DVD burners aren’t that good at it), and mine burns really nicely, never had a problem with it, and I’ve had it a few years now
