Define "pirate friend"...is he an actual pirate who roams the high seas and raids other peoples' boats?
If so, that would be a cool life! Although, I wonder how he owns all those CD burners if he is contantly sailing. He'd need a pretty fancy boat to provide electricity to a computer and enough electricity to constantly burn 50,000 CD's!
lol you know what I mean. Pirate = one who makes many illegal copies of software discs and sells them on. It's a big business. I don't do it but I know plenty who do
Teac CDR5xS (4x, 6x, 8x SCSI burners), and Plextor 8x SCSI burners are among the most reliable.
Yup, I'd say you've got that right. I think it's fair to say that early generations of Japanese equipment, made in Japan are nearly always the last word in engineering quality. Only when they start "consumerising" items, making them out of lower grade components in China and the like to cut costs do they start to slip. I wouldn't be at all surprised if there are still early TEACs and Plextors on the go 10 years from now. And yet, ironically, they go dirt cheap on ebay, with cheap pieces of crap like early HPs, BTCs and Memorex/Aopens fetching silly money. Idiots, the lot of them.
