People who think that this Yamaha drive is just the same as al the other brands, you're wrong. There are some huge differences with regards to firewtire in all of the CD-RWs out there, and because of this, the Yamaha CRW8424SZ is one serious piece of kit. Although it usually depends on what you use it for, the Yamaha CRW8424SZ will burn almost anything error free, and quickly. With the possible exception of Sony, Yamaha CD burners are up there in the clouds. So, what makes these stand out from the rest? There are several different aspects that show: 1) COPYING Although burners are sadly used to make illegal copies of games nowadays, they can also be used to make legit copies for yourself. Unfortunately a lot of companies that make software put all sorts of protection on the disks to stop you from copying them, so if your game is screwed, it's screwed. Not with the Yamaha CRW8424SZ. Believe it or ot, the Yamaha does not give a toss about copy protection. In fact, it copies the protection over to the new CD, providing that you read the CD with the Yamaha CRW8424SZ in the first place. Very useful if you don't want to use your master copy all the time... 2)MUSIC Converting mp3s into CDDA, the burning is a breeze with the Yamaha CRW8424SZ. If you have Nero, it's even easier! All you have to do is drag the files over into Nero, and burn! because the burner is so fast, it doesn't take long at all - say 10 mins. I haven't had a dud CD yet! 3)GENERAL DATA Recording any data onto a CD is very simple with the Yamaha CRW8424SZ. The process is very simple, all you do is follow the instructions with the software provided and burn! Trust me, there's nothing simpler, apart from installation! 4) INSTALLATION Installing the drive is a very simple process. 1. Open your PC up 2. Take out the cover blocking one of your drive bays 3.

Grreat, this yamaha is a very nifty peice of harware. Lets you copy anything... but wait.. its rather expensive, and do you really need the scsi version?. My friend bought the yamaha, and payed 200 pounds while i bought a mitsumi and paid 105 pounds... who got a better deal?. Well to start off with, the yamaha has brand name, while misumi, sounds pretty shite. but then, i bought my one from reseraching all its features while he used brand name on its own. After using both CDRs for a few months, we came to a definite conclusion. the Mitsumi could do all the yamaha could do. no difference except that his is slightly faster at reading. So the conclusion i came to was to stick with a mitsumi. Its cheap and does a good job!. for more info, check out the MITSUMI THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE.. for more info.
