My memorex 3252AJI has been nothing but trouble since the day I bought the thing several years ago. I want to replace with a DVD burner. I want a sata drive and since I don't have any sata ports yet (old motherboard IDE only) I would use a sata to ide interface. Can any one recommend both a fast quiet burners and a sata to ide adapter?
Others will probably disagree with me but I would go with a Pioneer or Sony burner over a LITE-ON. I had a LITE-ON fail on me once while it was under warranty, and I was unable to get a response from LITE-ON via email or phone. No, it is perhaps not correct to condemn a company over a single bad experience, but I know I can return something to Pioneer or Sony without sacrificing chickens.
Looks nice but keep in mind that performance is all about media compatibility.
"Try Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden for media. I have this drive and can confirm that it writes at 22x with Verbatim media.
