Re: Tayio Yuden + or -?????

oops. nope. you're right. 74min CD's only back then.

but my point is, maybe if you have burn issues its not the discs..its that cheapo burner you purchased.

in the mid-90's the issue was the system/bus speed/hard drive throughput.
80Mhz systems with SCSI drives would often fail on the $5 blank CD & $400 2x SCSI burner.

I wish people who have burn issues would post what drive they are using.
my guess is they own a $30 burner quickly built in china. my advice is get the $100 burner

Re: Tayio Yuden + or -?????

Why should we get an 100 dollars burner? To see it next month at half price?

Most burners today are in the $30-50 range.

Paid $200 for my first crappy LG. Never buy that brand again.

What's the scoop on Plextors? Are they worth the extra bucks?

Re: Tayio Yuden + or -?????

I've never had a single problem with my Plextor. Don't know if others would call them worth the extra money, but I like knowing that it's not gonna be the weak link in my setup.

I payed 100$+ (don't remember the excance rates) for an LG and next month it was 30-40$.

About Plextor: many will say yes, and others will say no.

In my opinion the most problems are caused by bad media not by the burner.

I have to agree with that.

Re: Tayio Yuden + or -?????

Burners are incredibly cheap, especially if you buy OEM models from Newegg.com and the like (around $20 or so). I get about a year on a typical OEM burner, then errors start to show up and I buy another. My first CD burner was a Plextor (SCSI, because it mattered back then), the last Plextor I bought (about three years ago) lasted a year and I decided at that point that I wasn't going to pay a premium for a drive that lasts a year. Of course, I burn a lot of discs , so YMMV.

Buy good media, pay attention to the quality of your burns. If you start seeing a problem then figure it's time to spend another $25 on a burner.
