plexwriters will definitely work. However you don't have to get the fastest burner. TDK burner specs don't state exactly CD+G but I think they would work as almost any burner now-a-days will burn CD+G.


A TDK 24X is only 149 retail. a 24X plextor is ~200 retail.

Of course you can get deals online too.


update, the 8x TDK burner specs say it supports CD+G

anything above that 12x, 16x, 24x, drive spec don't specifically say cd+g

Newegg has the retail version of the 24X Lite-On (LTR-24102B-01) for $96 + $6 shipping. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduct.asp?submit=manufactory&catalog=5&manufactory=1336

IMHO it is the best burner on the market right now. The 24X Plextor is the only thing faster (by only 2 seconds for normal recording) and the Plextor is having media and error correction problems. The Lite-On will do absolutely everything except possibly a new copy protection that they have put on a handful of audio CDs. I’m not sure it won’t do that, but I haven’t seen anything definite. Review: http://cdrinfo.com/hardware/liteon24102/index.shtml

At that price there is no reason to compromise with slower burners that have limitations for things like SD2 copy protection and 99 minute CDs.

It also comes with Nero 5.5 which is an excellent package.

Yes lite-on drives I have heard are very awesome and cheap in price.

Trusty old pioneer 16X DVD drives are not getting as much action since lite-on put out their 16x DVD drive because it is cheaper and better.

CDrinfo is a good site. They have nothing bad to say about LiteOn Burners either.

So good call slipe
