I just posted the article The first Plextor 24x (PX-W2410A) review available….

The guys from CDR-info were again the first with the review of the new plextor drive: PX-W2410A IDE CDR-W. The drive was announced almost a month ago. This new drive is the first drive which…

Seems like a great drive… Especially when it finally can create 100% working SafeDisc 2 copies! One thought though: The review says that the read-speeds in CloneCD suck, and my question is, will all other sipported drives be able to create the SafeDisc 2-images so I can burn them with the Plextor? I have a Plextor 8432 and I have never used it for making the images, I have always used my Toshiba XM-6702B CD-ROM… WIll this still work with SafeDisc 2 protected discs?

Chronic: The problem with SD2 is the writing part - not the reading part. So all drives that can produce a valid SD1 image file with CloneCD will also be able to produce a valid SD2 image. So the answer to your question is YES.

I will have too wait for the SCSI version, prob a very long wait :frowning:

Thanks, petspeed! :smiley:

“plextor cares about its customers” hah, whatever… my 8/20 plextor can’t even perform the basic task of writing onto a miniCD or a business card shape CD… it doesnt even recognise something writable in the drive! Plextor cared so much about making a bugfixed firmware that they politly told me to fuck off. I’d love to buy plextor again, but they just dont have the latest features anymore.

Rowan, you can to write a 3" CD or BC CD in an 8/20, you just need a Caddy adapter. Its not a firmware fixt, the PHYSCIAL DRIVE cannot handle smaller then the regular size. If you want more info on these Caddy adapters, LEMME KNOW… I burn 3" all the time in my 8/2/20 and my 8/20 :4

Plextor … Again rulez :4:4:4

I have a funny feeling that now when the SD2-capable writers are hitting the market I can bet my foot that SD3 will surface pretty fast… But not until Plextor and the other companies are happy with their sales-figures! Then they’ll just call their friends over at Macrovision and say: OK, you can start using it now, mwua ha ha ha! :wink: Who said I’m paranoid? Huh? Huh? :wink:

i read both reviews (plextor and liteon) and liteon seemed ALOT better strangly enough just a very little slower sometimes, but the liteon can at least read everything and do dea without faults what do u guys think? will plextor be able to make this up before releasing the drive? if not my next drive will be the liteon


#11

Wasn’t the Plextor released today? That’s the date I heard, 2nd of August!


#12

plextor rulez and keeps on ruling…dont talk about that liteon piece of shit, lite on is a low end low budget brand that can never compete with plextor...but I hope that theyll make a scsi version of it this time…cause I really nead a new writer…


#13

have u read the reviews??? plextor had problems with reading all kinds of shit… liteon didnt i dont give a fuck about a name if one product is better then another then it is like that i still hope though that plextor will improve its writer with a new firmware or something, but if it remains like this then the liteon is just better…

Interceptor, if your waiting for a SCSI version I think you’ll be waiting nearly indefinitely. Basically, dont hold your breath for a SCSI version, they aren’t economically vaible products any more.
