Portable CD Tattoos with Yamaha's CRW-F1UX USB 2.0 Burner

Data-RW

We carry out the CD-RW write test with the Ultra-Speed medium supplied. Nero Burning ROM 5.5.9.9 is used to do the writing. The size of the data record comes to exactly 660152 kB (645 MB), and we choose TAO as the write method.

Thanks to 24x mode, in this discipline the CRW-F1UX sets a new record of 3 minutes and 41 seconds, and completely outclasses the competition from the 12x / 10x camp.

CD-DA And Advanced Audio Master Quality Recording

The image for the audio CD was made up of 20 tracks with a total playing time of 79 minutes and 4 seconds. Die CD-DA is written in DAO mode, and with text contents.

In this instance, the CDW-F1UX even has to admit defeat by the Waitec II by a small margin.

And, of course we couldn't be deprived of making a recording in Advanced Audio Master Recording Mode. It took twenty minutes and 52 seconds to record seventeen tracks with a total playing time of 1 hour, 8 minutes and 15 seconds. We were not able to distinguish any difference in the quality of the sound compared with a normally recorded audio CD.

  • I am glad i found this article/review. I have a crw-f1ux minus the needed software. While I am not so interested in discT@2, I would like to use Advanced Audio Master Quality Recording, to create audio cds. Do you know where one can get said software? Yamaha does not have it, nor does Nero answer their phones during stated business hours. I currently use Easy CD creator, but I suspect I need the FULL version of Nero that came with this 2002 unit. While I wait for Nero's reply, would you happen to know? Thank you in advance.
