Good CD-RW's

  1. Here's an easy question for you...

    I need a good, value for money, CD-RW that won't break the bank? :)

    After recent troubles with my IBM drive, I've decided that backing up on CD's is possibly the safest option (important stuff anyway)...

    Any thoughts?

    getting good reports about, say, a 40x or 48x Lite-on drive. Few problems and easy to make copy, erm... backup.... copy protected CDs....

    Ok, I have my nice new Liteon CD-RW, but what is the best software to use with it?

    I am demanding, hehe :rolleyes:

    I'd say go with Nero. :grinthumb

    No burning software came with it? :confused:

    Yea, there are a few CD's in there... I'm too lazy to install it atm :( I've got a WD 120gig Cavair to install too.

    I just doubted that the software with the drive would be the "best"... I'll give Nero a go tho...

    Cheers :grinthumb

    It all depends on what you want to burn......Nero is good for people who don't know much about burning. Makes things simple.

    I recommend CDRwin for most things. A little harder to understand, but better IMO.
