    It does cache, setting 1024 KB will not hurt (it is really around 580KB)

    Thanks, Spoon. I'm assuming I need to enter something manually ... since hitting the 'Detect' button comes back with '(none).'

    What is the proper syntax?

    Would I be correct in assuming FUA Support is a no go?

    Why is this drive better than my Plexwriter Premium again?

    FUA is not used on 230a, any of the above you listed will be accepted.

    Re: best brand of cd-drive for ripping

    hi I'm new here

    what's C2 error support? the ability to play scratch discs?

    I had a sony or pioneer dvd rom only player (I sold that drive to my brother. I'll look for the model no. next time I see his computer) that excelled at this. it rip discs that would not even load into any other cd player home or computer. years ago I ripped everyone on my scratch discs to my computer then back them up to my other computers. I no longer have a need for it, because now when I buy a cd, I burn 2 copies, rip it and put the original up.

    the funny thing was I started buying that name brand dvd burner and roms because of this feature and I could never find one that could rip as good as that one

    c2 is the ability to detect errors.

    I don't know about these new technologies now, but in the old days, dvd rom's not burners were the best drive for ripping

    Spoon can you recommend a good (the best) external cd drive? I'm thinking to buy one to get best ripping possible... so far i know that PLEXTOR brand is the best...

    What you think about Plextor PX810UFSWBL External CD/DVD RW Drive (Black)

    I am not sure the 8xx line of Plextors are any good, no imperical evidence just people talking about it not being great. Some of the early good plextors, such as Plextor PX-712UF, were external USB. You can still buy, but they are not cheap, esaitech.com has them in stock.

    What you mean with any even an "internal cd drive"?

    I use CoolGear 5.25" IDE to USB/Firewire external enclosures

    http://www.coolgear.com/Category.cfm?catid=313&s=5&AZX=

    I have Plextor Plexwriter, PX-230 and PX-760 drives in them. One potential issue with external USB enclosures is that with your specific computer, dbpoweramp may not be able to detect C2 over the USB connection. This is very likely to be the case with a computer whose MOBO has on-board SATA RAID controllers.

    C2 over USB can also sometimes be disrupted by other media drivers (Creative and Nero). To even further muddy the waters, I could only get C2 detection over USB from the CoolGear enclosures with dbpoweramp by installing Plextools.

    I never got Firewire to work detecting C2 on any of my five different machines (all desktops). There are two or three LONG threads about this issue from back in January or February.

    I also use Addonics IDE to SATA adapter boards and plug dvd drives directly into the SATA MOBO or an external eSATA connection. This has provided reliable C2 detection with the DVD drives (Plextor and Samsung) but not the CD only drives.

    I also tried two models of Plextor external USB/Firewire drives (708UF and 718UF). I could not get dbpoweramp to detect c2.

    Very maddening. This should be an FAQ. If I write up a FAQ on this will Lt. Data or Spoons allow it in the FAQ?

    Phil
