Hi there. Forgive me since I’m really new to the blank media thing. For a few years I was naive and just used Memorex or Maxell, but very recently ordered a bunch of TY CD-Rs and TY DVD+Rs (Media ID: YUDEN000T02) from www.blankmedia.ca.
I’ve read most of the FAQ-type stuff so I understand media IDs and that some TY is fake (but not from blankmedia.ca) and all that sort of stuff.
But I’ve got a couple questions I couldn’t find answers to:
I’ve got a bunch of stuff burned from my naive days (mostly Memorex) and I’m wondering if I rip a CD image of those discs using, say Alcohol 120% or a program like that, if I’m guaranteed any sort of error checking. I want to make sure the data I’m salvaging will be accurate so I can burn them to my TY discs.
I bought a DVD-ROM drive for playing movies and ripping CDs and such. It’s a Liteon. Is that a good brand?
I’d really appreciate any answers since I’m really new to this.
