    Which DVD Recorder, NEC ND4551 or LG LG4166, for specific needs...

    Hello,
    I’m interested in buying one of these two DVD Recorders, as they’re supposed to be the best in the market at the moment:

    NEC ND4551
    http://www.nec.co.uk/ND4551.aspx

    LG LG4166 Black
    https://www.24hours-open.net/index.p...ller=%&seite=1
    http://www.plaisio.gr/IWCatProductPa...Id=1&sts_cid=3

    I’m mainly interested in backing up my original CD/DVD SONY PS-1, PS-2, and PC-DVD/CD I ROM, Saturn, SEGA CD, NEC PCE Super CD and all my CD/DVD-ROM based games collection (Especially some of my rare original Japanese Shooters) and not so much for computer data, as I’ve solved capacity problems with large Hard Drives.

    So which one is more fitting for the job?

    Thanks in advance.

    I bought a NEC drive for my Dad about 6 months ago and can't fault it. I'm recommending them to everyone I know. I'm gonna change my old SOny drive for a NEC one soon.

    I've no experience with the LG drives though.

    By the way, what's the best burning software to use for PS-1/PS-2 CD/DVD backs ups?

    Nero, Alcohol, CloneCD?

    I've had some issues with Nero not including the audio tracks session in a RayStorm PSX CD image.
    Back then, I used the basic Nero image-creating settings (3 years ago), on a Plextor 16X burner and ended up with a coaster with no audio.

    However, the image was created successfully with CloneCD and worked perfectly when I burned it on CD.

    I have a tendency in using Verbatim & TDK CD/DVDs, which I consider the best judging from experience, rather than technical facts.

    Which do you consider the best?

    Sorry mate, but we cant have talk of copying games on here
    Hope you understand.

    As for the drive, id personaly go with a NEC. Any Ritek based disks will serve you well for a reasonable price too.
