    If you want a CD-R burning program that is between Nero 4.0.8.3 and Adaptec Easy CD Creator 3.5c or 4.0 then I would look into Cequadrat's WinOnCD 3.6 or 3.7. It offers more features than Adaptec's Easy CD Creator, but it also is still very easy to understand and use

    Sincerely,

    Well, there's only one:

    HP 9110 (8x4x32x)

    Something to mention about the Plextor is that although there may be no visual or noticeable defects on the burned CD, there are quite a few faults when U examine the CD with adequate equipment.

    Buy HP!

    The Mitsumi 4804te (24x4x4) is great value for money and is reliable as puck.

    Well, i have been reading everyone's options and i think all of those drives are great.
    Out of all those good drives, Ricoh and Hp are two of my favorites. I own at 2x/2x/6x since 1997 and it haven't made a coaster!!!!
    I just brought my new cdrw drive (Ricoh 6x\4x\24x) in October, 2000 because my HP are getting old and it works great. Work with every possible cdr i have tried. But when buying new cdrw drive, one should keep this in mind: some drives ex. Philip have problem reading certain colour dye on the cdr. So one should buy a cdrw drive that can handle all the dye out there and therefore giving you a much more flexible choice when going shopping for blank cd.

    I presently have a memorex 1622CRW. IT has it's bad days but for the most part it has done me justice.

    My next purchase will be plextor. Everyone I talk to seems to have great luck with the drives. The prices seem to be lower than other drives worth crap.

    Coasters can be a pain but considering the fact that CD-R media is cheap, its only time being wasted. I burn while I sleep anyway.

    I use a Mitsumi 4804t 4x4x24 Burner. It is not the fastest or the best but I bought it for $160 in November and I have only made one Coaster and I burn at least 2-3 CD's a week. The Coaster was because My HD was dying and it couldn't keep up with the Burner. I should have known no to try a Burn. I recommend the Mitsumi 4804t. All media I have used in it works perfect. And it came with Adaptec software.....I ditched it and I know use Nero for all my burning needs.

    I'd recommend the plextor 8x4x42. HP is also good. I've heard good thins about Ricoh, and www.tekfront.com is supposed to have a review of the new 8x up soon.

    Ricoh 7060 or Mitsubishi 4 6 30
    Whenever there's doubt, there's no doubt.
