I have a powerfull PC bundle that I am getting rid of, and am going to use my lappy. The lappy is an old (but solidly reliable) DELL Latitude C5x. 1.4 mghz processor. Running Win 2000.
I am contemplating an external CD-RW as an interim to another PC bundle. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Of course I have made my own investigations, but there are so many on the market it's a minefield. To be honest, I use the CD-RW for backup and recording MP3 or WAV and that's about it. Simple stuff.
All I need is something not too pricey but solidly reliable. The one I had with my Pc bundle drives me mad with crashes, hangs, and the rest. When it works, it's fast - 700mb cd-to-cd in 2.5 mins. But I loose so many discs because of errors it's untrue.
Thanks for the advice. Ah right, the slower the better. I was not sure, as you always expect speed to be a prime consideration in this area. Wll I do anyway. I am just so frustrated by the internal CD-R I have on my tower PC that causes so many problems, that I think I am just going to get rid of it and use the laptop, which is pretty reliable.
It's so bad on the PC that backup CD-RW discs with all my data end up not being readable, then the PC crashes and I lkoose all my data - which I have done again. Recording has a 50:50 success rate - literally for every CD I burm I loose one to incomplete recording etc.etc. God it does my head in.
