To backup CD+G discs, you must have one of the following recorders...
Hewlett Packard 7500 / 8100 / 8200 / 9100 / 9200
Plextor PX-R412C (must have firmware version 1.07)
Plextor PX-R820T / PX-W4220T / PX-W8220T)
Sony CRX100E / CRX110E / CRX120E / CRX140E / CRX140S
Yamaha All Models
All of the above recorders (except the Yamaha CDR100/CDR102, CW-7501, and CDR4240) are capable of both reading and writing CD+G discs. If you do not have a model that can read CD+G, then you will have to purchase a separate CDROM drive that has this capability.
The following CDROM drives are supported for reading CD+G discs...
Plextor 4Plex Plus
Plextor 8Plex (not recommended)
Sony 76S (not recommended)
Sony 415 (only works well at 1x reading speed)"
Of course they're not big on keeping things updated, so this very well might not be 100% accurate. Example, my old Mitsumi 4804TE can do CDText, but I couldn't find where Goldenhawk lists it.
I agree about the trouble aspect, but it's still kinda cool to be able to do it [assuming your burner can].
Hmm Iomega isnt listed lol ANYWAYS. Im talking from the ability to do it =) I mean I only have ONE cd-g that came with 1.10 I just wanna see if I can make my own, turn it into a iso, and see if sega cd gens will read it. Wasnt gonna burn that I dont even burn games no more I do the iso. 6 sega cd games on one cd lol =)
BTW folks, how many "normal" music CDs [e.g. non-karaoke] have you come across that are CD+G? I can only think of three - Chris Isaak's Silvertone; A Jimi Hendrix greatest hits collection, and a Dramarama disc who's name escapes me.
