I'm looking at getting a CD-RW to last me about a year until DVD+RW becomes cheaper and the one feature I really want is Mt Rainier compatibiliy since I transfer a lot of files. The problem is finding the drives that support the Mt Rainier standard. Can anyone tell me which drives are compatible? So far there's only the Yamaha 40x (oops:eek: I meant 24x) that I know to be compatibly, but it is expensive. If anyone knows of a Mt Rainier compatible CD-RW that burns at ~20-24X that would be great.

Any suggestions are, as always, welcome. :)

My Yamaha 3200 (24 x 10 x 40) has Mt. Rainer support. The drive itself runs less than $200

Actually now I cant find the link the says the plextor supports it. When I was in the market, I remember seeing it though and I had to make a choice between it and lite-on. I thought I won't use it and went for lite-on....

andrey,

Hmmm... I still have my doubts about Mt. Rainier reliability, especially since you're dealing with +/-RW media. Regardless of the hype, these things are just not built for data integrity.

CQuinn, none, as no OS supports Mt. Ranier yet. So, it's a bit of being ahead of the technology curve right now. I bought the Yamaha drive for a new box I just built, and while the Mt. Ranier technology was a plus, the real reason I bought the Yamaha drive was for the improved CD audio burn and 8MB cache.
