Excellent, and it could tell you why


This was a great CD writer, and it had an amazing function: It could analyze recorded CD-rs and tell you how well they burned.

It could also analyze CD-r blank media, and tell you if they were good or not.

Super useful for a mastering room. Before this drive, you had to get a machine that did this as a dedicated function, and I believe it cost around $2-$3k.

One of those ‘tipping point’ moments of technology.
