I have a fairly new PlexWriter 40/12/40A. ---- I use plextools for DAE on my audio cd’s quite frequently. (some of which are damaged and require multiple passes over damaged sectors, but not that many)
My goal is to backup all my audio discs, and all my dvd’s with divx on cd. Then I can keep the originals safe & use the backups without fear of scratching them.
I plan on burning at least 2000 discs (mabye even more) during 2003, and doing DAE on several hundred more audio cd’s with the same drive. – But I’ll do this in reasonable increments: Burning 20 discs in a row, then no more for that day… Ripping 10 or 15 audio discs in a row, then no more for that day… etc…
Should I get another Plextor so that the two drives can share the work? I read in another post on this forum that Plextors are the best for withstanding extreme usage like this, but how much is too much?
Also, does the burn-quality of plextors get worse as the drive nears its death?
