    Yamaha CDrw

    Was wondering if any one knew anything about the new Yamaha Cdrw.
    The yamaha CRW-F1SB1 44X/24X/44X with DISCT@2

    where ya can burn the graphics right to the cd.....

    Has any one tried this out? do the graphics look crisp and nice on the cd, and can ya burn any graphic you want?

    any reviews on this would be great - more actual user related reviews then from just the big reviews from like tomshardware, etc. hehe......

    IDE and/or SCSI - since I'm not really sure which one I'll get yet!

    Thanks all!

    P.S. my #1 choice for my new Cdrw would be a plextor, but I'm intrigued over the graphic burning

    Suggest that you proceed with caution.
    Not sure exactly where, but I do remember some comments of quirks or such with the feature...

    as far as i know the graphic burning impinges on the burn-space of the disk, so if you do full-size burns the graphic will be small or non-existant.

    "graphic burning impinges on the burn-space "


    wouldn't the graphics be on the "other" side of the CD?

    but all in all - it would be suggested to get the plextor?

    i was under the impression that the text/graphics was on the underside of the cd, where the data is burned to.

    It is not only on the recording side but you canít see it very well with many CDs. They always use the Verbatim CDs with the dark blue azo dye for samples, but they are evidently hard to see with cyanine and almost impossible with phthalocyanine.

    I burn many discs I donít fill, but it would have to be consistent to use as a standard labeling system, and I donít think many people will want to forfeit 150Mb on each CD to label them that way.
