Question Burner life poll: How many burns with one burner?

sponsored links

 
I am curious how many burns members have made
with a single burner?

I have nuemrous burns since February of 2001.
However, they were created with several burners:
I started with my USB burner on my new (at the time) laptop,
then I bought a new desktop last June and a
12X burner to go with it, and started using that.
In September I upgraded to a 24X burner, with which I have burned
quite a few CD-Rs so far.

I was wondering how many burns have been accomplished
with a single burner?

Thanks!

my first burner was a liteon 16102b, and that broke after 100 burns. I'm now on my second liteon, and i've done about 80 so far. fingers crossed...

Sorry to hear that.
100 burns only; ouch! I think I have done more than that in the last three or four weeks.
I hope you have better luck with the replacement.

I had a similar problem with a DVD player. It quit after only five weeks of average use; I've had a replacement (identical model) for about 9 months now, and it is still going strong.

I've done aprox 5,000 burns (full discs) on a LiteOn 24102b so far.

I was talking to a hardware bod a few months back and he said that Plextor reckon that a single CDRW drive made by them is good for 100,000 burns. Don't know if this is true or not though, sounds a bit optimistic to me.

I've done approx 10000 burns with my trusty old yamaha SCSI 6x4x16, and it is still going strong. It reads faster than my new IDE plex 24x10x40.............
