Looking for reliable CD burner for everthing from music to SFX and other data files. Also will they read on both CD players and CDR players? I have heard the Yamaha 4416, the plextor and the Tascam 624 mentioned in other threads. I guess some models come bundled with Jam,Toast etc.
I'm new at the CD burning thing so I don't want to blow $$ on the wrong piece of equipment.

Thanks for any help
Craig

I also have a Plextor 8/20 and never had any problems, even recording at 8X.

dan & eduardo,

just bought a plextor 822 that writes fine at 8x with Toast 3.5.7 and Jam 2.5, but it can't read what it wrote (i.e. PT song files and audio files) or do audio extraction. FWIW, my Apple Cd-rom reader can do both.

I did download the Plextor 822 patch from www.plextor.com. I tried removing the Apple CD-ROM extension as well as the Toast Reader extension, no avail. The store was kind enough to exchange for a second plextor 822 but that didn't change anything. It looks like a software problem.

I'm running PTmix+ 4.3.1 on a 9600/350/192mb with OS 8.1.

Are there are software drivers that i'm missing? FWB CD-ROM toolkit needed? Extension conflicts?

Any advice would be great.

Anybody? Plextor defenders to the rescue?

P.S. Digi, I'm using Jam due to lower $$$ but would buy MLCD tomorrow if it had DDP.

Plextor is the way w/Jam..... Digi to slow on updates for MLCD.

Jon,

What software are you using to extract audio? Toast Audio Extractor works best for me. I had the same situation a while back, in short...software conflict.

In another case extraction was not supported by the drive I was using, much to my surprise.

Plextor 8220 is the best. And it works with MLCD 2.2
Mine does not audio extraction, but I have CD-ROM player in G3, so this is not a problem. Plextor reads slow, but who cares http://www.digidesign.com/ubb/images/icons/smile.gif

I'm using the Plextor 8/20 as well. So far I've only used it with MLCD for audio and with Retrospect Express for backups. It's been great. I've been burning reference audio CDs on $1 TDK CDRs and they seem to play on every CD player I've tried....cheap boom boxes, whatever.

I now use a Yamaha. At 6X, this drive has not let me down once. It extracts with Toast very well.
