I have the CDRW drives so far:
1 Plextor 16x ide
1 Yamaha 16x ide
1 Teac 8x ide
I want to build a new machine and use it as a CDR jukebox, that will allow me to burn several CDs at the same time using software like (Nero 5.5se, or discJuggler, or CDRwin 4.0beta). I’ll start with 2 burners at a time, then move up to 4 burners at a time if i get things working.
I hate my Yamaha drive (it sounds like a LairJet when it spins).
and i love my Plextor 16x.
Here are the prices for CDRW drives at my local store (in Canadian dollars)
Plextor 16x $288
Yamaha 16x $190
Sony 16x $180
Teach 16x $230
I want to get more plextor drives but they cost almost 50% more than the Yamaha and Sony drives. I want to make sure i get all the same drive/model to make it easier to burn with.
I want to build a new machine to allow me to burn 4 CDs at a time.
MY QUESTION: Has anyone here every actually burned to more than one IDE CDRW drive at the same time? Do you suggest I spend the extra money to get 3 more plextors or should i go cheap and get 4 Sonys. Does anyone else also hate/love their yamaha 16x? How about software? has anyone did a mutiburn yet? (what software)?
Thanks for your help. …adam
