Howdy all. I'm looking to replace my CD-RW drive, for a number of reasons. First, it's old (at least 3 years old) and slow - it's fastest burn speed is 2x! Second, the burner doesn't seem to do a good job burning CDs that most or all players can read. I'm looking to stay around $100, give or take a little. My initial research seems to indicate that Yamaha and Plextor are considered the "best." However, I've been using an Acer/Adaptec and had NO problems with it at all, other than speed and the read issue. If it helps, my machine has Windows 2000 on it, and I use Easy CD Creator 5 platinum for burning CDs. Thanks in advance.
