regarding bitsetting, well, I want the recorder primarily for backing up data (audio and video), so the bitsetting is not important to me. And, well, I don’t know much about bitsetting, but I guess if you use DVD-R discs, you don’t need bitsetting, am I right?
I don’t think I have the money to buy both drives now… but later, maybe.
I have seen that Verbatim 4X media is now at 80 euros/100 units. Probably Mitsubishi Chemicals. Maybe I buy these and compare with the Ridiscs. Then, if Ridiscs are bad, I return the unused cakeboxes.
One question. I don’t have a LiteOn DVD burner, but I have the LTD-163D DVD reader.
May I use Kprobe with the LTD-163D to compare, e.g, the Ridisc and the Verbatim, recorded, eg, with the ND2500?
-A LiteOn too? then that’s 3 drives!!! lol
No, I am restricted to NEC and Pioneer, because according to the reviews, they have the best writting quality. Anyway, I like the LiteOn’s because they traditionally work very well with speed-controlling programs, like CD_Bremse.
-I hope my Ridiscs are good enough. I live in Spain, and ordered them to Germany.
Returning them will be costly.
-Yes, well, BeAll -R or +R, they cost the same, a bit more than the Ridiscs. Also, with luck, I will get TY-Samsungs instead of BeAll-Samsungs. I wish I could order to Newegg.
I have not investigated Ridatas… I don’t see them in the shops I have looked at.
thanks to all for the help
