Bij CD-R info hebben ze een grondige review gepost van de Yamaha 8424S CDR-W brander. Dit SCSI beestje brandt op 8 speed, herfikt op 4-voudige snelheid en leest cd's op 24 speed.
Is Yamaha 8424s any good ?
Yamaha 8424s seems to be the best Yamaha CDR-W ever tested.. When Yamaha going to support CD-Text ?
The next generation after 8424x will support CD-TEXT. This new generation will be launch on Spring-Summer 2000. Is there any possibility with firmware upgrade to include CD-Text on current Yamaha Models ?
No, because for supporting CD-TEXT you need a Red Book LSI (Chipset) and firmware modification. Sony created CD-TEXT and they sales LSI chipset to other manufacturer. Yamaha built is own red Book LSI chipset. The next generation will have a new red Book LSI chipset with CD-TEXT and faster DAE (above 24X!!) Why don't Yamaha CDR-W drives support read/write RAW ?
When you use MMC-3 (ANSI Multimedia Command Set SCSI-3) standard is quite difficult to implement RAW read/write..That's why all newer CDR-W doesn't support it.. Why i should (or not) care about RAW read/write ?
Read/write RAW is very useful to users..With the arrival of CloneCD users, which their CDR-W supports RAW read/write, can do
of their protected CDs.. Is Yamaha plans any 12x CDR-W drive soon..
Yamaha Japan is developing for Q3 2000 a Ultra speed CD-R/RW drive. The pick up will be specially designed for High speed...
