I need to get 2 replacement burners for my BenQ 162I and thought a more direct query re what external burners have automatic bit setting would be the best question.
I bought the Sony drx 810 ul with the understanding that it has automatic bit setting for R+ media as long as it was TDK, Sony or Verbatim and not Maxell or Fuji due to dye used on the discs and this was from their phone tech support.
Both members of my family need me to purchase these for university and so I hope that someone can assist with suggested models.
There is a newer model Sony which is usb 2 and that is the drx 820u which is supposed to have auto bit setting only it comes without firewire which the prior model mentioned that I bought for one of the children has and so I wondered if it has auto bit setting for DVD ROM burning as our prior BenQ’s 162I with their Book Management exe. Though the firewire would be nice the BenQ’s that they had did not have it only usb 2 and so i believe that they can live with that. BTW, there is no need for Light Scribe.
I really would appreciate experienced members comments as I need to get these right away.
Also comments on whether Sony is correct in advising me that the one model listed above that we bought has the auto bit setting and that the R+ media recommended is correct.
I don’t want to have my children who are in their final years at university get the wrong dvd burners.
Your expertise would be genuinely appreciated, thankyou.
BTW. when you go to any of the stores here in Canada they don’t know what the children nor I are talking about when we reference auto bit setting and DVD ROM, we seem to be in the dark ages tech wise here and so I really am looking for help from this well experienced forum.
