Whats the best cdrw drive, based on speed, software package (I dont want to pay $75 for the adaptec software to burn my games and music), and price.
I was thinking Plextor 8x4x32 cdrw drive, but I dont see that is comes with any software if it does, please tell me what is comes with and if I can burn games and music with it.
My second choice is a Yamaha 8x4x32 (CRW8424E) it comes with Adaptecs EZ CD Creator which I can burn my games and music, and even make labels (I just bought a label maker a few days ago though) for my cd's.
Now both of these are around $150, I would like to stay around that price range.
If the alarm clock woke you up this morning, you didn't get enough
If you want a software package with your CD-burner you will have to buy a retail package. (cheap and with soft).
I would advize the plextor cd-writer or even a TEAC writer(those writers burn really everything incl playstation cd's) . I really hate the adaptec software and would prefer the latest version of NERO burning ROM
If software is a concern, I bought my yamaha at costco for $169 and it came w/: adaptec, musicmatch v5, soundforge, mixman, and several things I regarded as silly, and couldn't bring myself to install. Musicmatch wont recognize this burner, but there is a plugin available for download. Here's some info on it. http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...%5Fcode=276329
I calculated the odds of this working versus the odds I was doing something really, really stupid, and...I went ahead anyway.
