Are Ricoh CD-R's any good ?
I see some deals on these, are they another "Memorex" of burners, a good name gone bad ??
My Ricoh 9060A DVD+CDRW "combo" drive has been working well for me for the past several months.
My Ricoh MP7060A works well. Its getting a bit old compared to the latest CDRWs but the only time its made a coaster is when I reinstalled Windows and the dma default was off.
It came with a 2 Ricoh cds so I have always tried to use those cds although lately I've just grabbed any cd and it still works fine.
I found a firmware flash(?) site for my model soon after I bought it so maybe the 3 flashes its had has helped - maybe not.
Doc! I share your fondness for HP burners. I bought a Ricoh MP7040A a couple of years ago and it was a POS. I got mebbe 3 months of use out of it in the year I owned it. Shipped it back 3 times. LOUSY!!!
That was the second burner I'd ever owned. The first was an HP7200e. Connects via the parallel port, burns at 2x, still works great.
Just say NO to RICOH.
I've had a Ricoh MP7080A for over a year now and it's fine, I've never made any coasters with it either, and I always burn on-the-fly with it too.
