    Plextor to discontinue consumer CD/DVD burners...

    Damn, that sucks. I truly love my PlexWriter Premium for DAE and audio burning, and have kept it through 3 or 4 rounds of DVD burner upgrades. What am I gonna do when it, or the IDE standard, finally dies... =(

    Houston, June 8th Headroom meets Head-Fi tour

    R-10s and SA-5000s... *drool* Man, this is making it more tempting by the moment. I'd be up for an Austinite carpool down there if we can get one together. I won't be on this weekend, unfortunately, but I'm pretty flexible in terms of timing, so almost anything will be fine with me. Just post...

    Houston, June 8th Headroom meets Head-Fi tour

    I'd really like to go (and I may make it yet), but it's gonna be a 2.5 hour drive to get to Houston, not to mention the time in traffic inside Houston... then I'll have to drive back (or beg a friend for a place to stay)... If only it were on a weekend. But that's the way it goes, I guess...

    Exact Audio Copy 0.95 beta 1 released!

    I've been using 0.95 Prebeta 3 all this time, and haven't had any problems at all... as far as I'm concerned, it might as well be a "final" version already. *upgrades anyway* ~KS

    Why am i keep missing e888???

    Maybe give the Audio-Technica ATH-CM7/Ti a try? I've owned th E888s before, and judging from memory, I thought the CM7s were similar, but somewhat better in sound quality. As for build quality, not really a contest at all. ~KS

    What MP3 Player is BEST LOOKING?

    I really liked the blue first-generation iPod Mini. (I own a 2G green one, since the new blue is more of a turqoise color that I don't care for). Toshiba's Gigabeat also looks pretty nice, if a bit big. ~KS

    How to use the Plainface Smiley?

    Don't think I've used it here, but on another forum, I've always used it as a response whenever someone says something so unintelligible that I don't even know where to start in correcting them... kinda like a "you're kidding me, right?" response. It compliments the rolling-eyes emoticon quite...

    Anyone else hooked on Guild Wars?! -nt-

    Thought about picking it up, but still play WoW for the time being. Might give it a try later. ~KS

    Nero - Did I waste my money?

    If you're going to spend $65 on a CD-RW (in the age when you can get DVD+/-RW DL drives for less), then you might as well get the PlexWriter Premium, $67 @ NewEgg: ~KS

    Nero - Did I waste my money?

    I don't have any personal experience with the ASUS drive, but if you can backup discs properly using the Plextor as both source and destination drive, it doesn't seem like Nero, the program, is causing these problems. Try reducing the read speed of the source drive (the ASUS) to something like...

    Nero - Did I waste my money?

    I've been using Nero since my first CD burner (a 4/4/24 by Smary & Friendly that costed $250 back then), and I've never had any problems caused by the program. Can you elaborate on what kind of problems you're having? You say backing up CDs... what kind? And are you doing it on-the-fly? I...

    Does Foobar support Global Hotkeys (like Winamp's)?

    foobar, on Win2K/XP, support Unicode by default... I don't recall ever having to do anything to enable it (and at least 3/4 of the music I listen to on a frequent basis has Unicode filenames/ID3v2 tags). ~KS

    PC upgrade question re: video card

    It should work in any A64 mobo with an AGP slot - AGP8x slots are backwards compatible with AGP4x. For a S939 system, if top-flight performance isn't a concern, and you don't need overwhelming OC-ing capabilities, you'll probably be very well served by a VIA K8T890-based board. The nForce 4 is...

    AV710 --> EMU 0404?

    I have the AV-710 (two of them, actually, but that's another story), and recently got the 0404... and there's no doubt in my mind that it was worth the $85 (price, after tax, that I got at Guitar Center). If you can afford it, you can always get both... I currently have both in my main...

    Has any E-mu given you trouble with gaming?

    Haven't tried... my 0404 is in my main workstation that I almost never play games on (even though it'd make a pretty nice gaming machine... A64 3000+ @ 2.3, nF3 Ultra, 6600GT). My gaming is done on my secondary system, which has my old Audigy (which I originally bought because I needed a...
