if you buy a decent make (ie plextor/yamaha or such) you wouldnt have any problems with either software compatibility or burning speed its the people who buy the cheapest high speed drive and then try to record on 20p blanks at the max speed and then get problems like the discs dont read well in everything, or just isnt recognoised by some of the software on the marketOriginally posted by Mysticales@June 12 2002,01:22
Who NEEDS fast speed! I mean think... 40 gig HD, OK fine!
2 ghz CPU, FINE!
SO WHAT Xp is still slow as hell, DOS is faster however
BUT its STILL slow due to the HD, SOOOO make a RAM hardrive! THAT would be FAST!
Also CD roms... still no need for em.
Im HAPPY with my 4x burner! The faster ones burn out faster, ALSO if you do movies or music 2x is safer anyways so quality is good. Also a better burn. mine is 3 years old and burning strong! (650 Iomega ZipCD external) Nice things!
