Lite-On

Always have been and always will be the world leaders in this technology, where they go, others follow.

In a word, RUBBISH! Anyone who knows anything about computers knows that Plextor have always been the best and still are, that's why they cost more. You can read any review site and they always come out top for speed, options and write reliability. Many CD/DVD writer review sites such as CDFreaks have in the past and may still do use a Plextor drive as the standard to which they compare other drives, as they are the best. Liteon are at best middle of the road and there are many above them, Pioneer, Sony, LG and even NEC to name a few.

Yes, as your avatar suggests you like to blow your own trumpet. The poll you show proves nothing. If you care to read it properly it is based on owners own views and as such is biased. If you read the feature list you will see the Lite-On drive has nothing to compare to Plextor. Their NEW "Smart-Write™ - Self-learning technology ensuring best writing quality with all media", is simply a rip off of Plextor's Auto stratagy which they have been using since the PX-712 over 2 years ago! The list is incorrect anyway as the CDfreaks score for the Plextor drive is 84% whereas the Lite-On drive is 72%, putting them at the top of that list. I'm not going to argue this point with you any further, as there are plenty of hardware review sites to look at so whatever drive you get you can make up your own mind. If you believe Lite-On to be the best for you then get on with it.

Yeah, well, if its hardware drives Ive tried them all on my many computors, and LG is high on my list, hp uses toshiba and its fine on write, but the litescribe is better on LG darker and clearer, so I go with that.... On dvds Ive tried the hp litescribes, and they are a cheaper version of the verbatim discs which boot more easily and burn both sides of litescribe much nicer.... Ive gotten pixelation from the cheaper hp discs and they give no discount at the same write speeds. Verbatum stands out the best. They also have the new verbatim Scratch Proof or resistant discs with an extra layer of glass, that important movies can be kept for years longer without worry... Thats just my opinion... respect miker3x@yahoo.com

I am in the process of burning a project on a dual layer DVD. It stops at 66 asking me to insert a layer break. How do I do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

You can use Imgburn software to create a layer break.
