Does anyone know of any drives that just do recording, not re-writeableing?
I would think they'd be cheaper, I'm curious.

Good question! I never use my re-write capability of my Plextor Burner. That would be nice if they had just a standard burner that just writes!

Hope someone has seen it!!

My friend had an panasonic cdr that does not have re-write. It was cheaper then re-writable that time but still cost him over $200.

They definately used to, my first on was a jvc xr2010 (scsi) 4x read and 2x write LOL (could have been 6x read, i forgets), but yes, not everyone wants a rewrite facility, but from a manuf point of view- its another feater to offer.....

they used to have them...
back in the days of 2x and 4x writing.
but Write and RW are standard features now.

I'll respect your comments & opinions, even if i disagree with them, Provided you dispay maturity.

Once upon a time ;)  there were CDR drives that didn't rewrite. But AFAIK every CDR above 8x is a CDRW - the added cost must be insignificant (added core logic really).

i used a rewritable CD last nite.

tried my single 4x-10x ricoh cd that was supplied with my ricoh drive to back up all my utilites & drivers i have installed.
mmm went wonderfully.

i may not use the RW feature again... but its still nice to have. the opportunity to add stuff or erase and start again on a high quality cd is not to be sniffed at. good data security incase things go LOL
