When I play an audio CD (commercial CD's and home made CDR's) I get an audio drop-out at the same place every time, not a glitch, but an actual mute in the audio ? Very strange. Also, when I burn CDR's I'm getting error reports, I'm guessing the drive must be on the way out ? if so, what would people recommend ? LG, or Pioneer ? the two most available brands locally, this is mainly for high quality audio Cd burning, not DVD.
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.
Hi, I've been told that there are no real advantages about using SATA over IDE ? SATA is believed to be quicker, but DVD drives aren't capable of using this extra speed. The cables are smaller, that's the only advantage I can see. Seeing as I already have an IDE connection in there I may as well stick with it.
Well, I've bought a Lite-On bog-standard IDE drive (£17.99 inc p+p from Amazon) My music pal's have all said that drives with things like Light Scribe or similar are prone to problems with some brands of Cd, I never use this anyway, so, we shall see !
