CD-RW vs Combo Drive

Postby cemjack on Sun Aug 22, 2004 1:40 am

I have been very happy with my Lite-on 48x writer. However, due to space requirements, I need a combo drive cd-rw and dvd-rom. I am looking to buy one of the Lite-on combo drives.

My question is, Are the lite-on combo drives as good or better at backingup games (using CloneCD, etc) when compared to the cd-rw only drive. The reason I purchased the lite-on to begin with was of its ability to backup games. What specifications do I need to look for when buying a new one. Thanks.

I believe that the LiteOn combo drives have had some issues of game backups. For the money, a dvd writer is probably a better bet for not much more money. The LiteOn 812 is decent, and probably better at game backups than the combo drives.
