PLEXTOR CD burners for computer, All pretty Good?

Member for

I am looking into getting a new CD burner for my computer b/c some of the masters that I have made don't play on all CD players. I use CD architect to layout my projects. Anyways, Best Buy has a couple PLEXTOR burners for sale. One is only around $100. I was wondering if these would produce a lot less errors per disc as compared to my burner on my Sony Vio computer and thus be easily read by CD players. Thanks.


CD Burner Question

Hi i have been having difficulties lately with my CD Burner. It seems to produce discs full of errors?

I have tried using different software Sequoia/Nero/Soundforge even Windows Media Player and all produce errors.

Will a CD lens cleaner have any effect on a CDR or should I just forget about it and buy a new one? If so suggestions please. Bear in mind I live in the UK so links to shops in the US would be a waste of time.

Cheers 'n' all that!

Pro vs. high-end consumer Burners / CD-R Pre-mastering

I recently e-mailed my replication service & asked which optical transport assembly they used to cut their glass masters; & which burner they would recommend to write CD-R pre-masters.

They came back with Plextor on the OTA...

& then went on to say that any of the burners I had mentioned (Tascam CD-RW2000, Alesis Masterlink, HHB BurnIt) would be wonderful, but that I might save some money if I went with a Plextor external SCSI or USB2 burner.

So, my question is:
