i have 3 questions and i feel this place is the best to ask them.
Currently i have WinXP Pro SP1
Lite-On SHW 160PS
Nero 6.0 (i have v.6.3. but never installed it because 6.0 works fine).
I plan to back up my hard drive (thats about 200GB or 50+dvds to burn). If i burn them one after the other (besides being boring) would it damage my drive? Is it better to let the drive rest after every burn?
I just checked and according to Nero the highest speed of my drive is 12. I dont plan to burn at speeds like 12 or 16, i am very happy with 8x, but just out of curiousity, why is the speed 12 and not 16? I’m using firmware v4 if that matters.
Because my comp is part of a LAN, with several hundred kids who do stupid things, I’m planning to update win to SP2. I heard that some Lite-on drives have problems using Nero under SP2? Will my drive fall in this category and if so, what can i do about it?
Thanks a lot to those who will take some time to read and answer my questions. I know im newbie with dvd burners but i guess id better start learning.
