As a few people on my music forum have recommended Pioneer, I thought this would be OK ? I wonder just how different these drives are in reality ?
When I burn a CD with my music application (Samplitude) it checks the CD after burning, and its been coming up with a lot of errors lately, doesn't say what they are though ? The most annoying thing is this audio drop out, I just have to try a new drive, it wont break the bank. The drive that's in there right now is three years old, but it hasn't had a lot of use really.
