At present I have 2 removable drives, my writer is LG, and my DVD rom is samsung, and normally if I want to copy a disc I place the CD in the rom drive and copy on the fly, but as the dvd rom is getting a bit old I have noticed that when I copy using on-the-fly the audio can be hard to have some ticks during playback, but when I use the other method of burning by placing the source disc in the writer drive, create the image, then place a CD-R in the writer and burn the image the audio has no problems during playback, would these errors be because I may have an issue with the rom drive, and that burning an image would be the better option. By the way, I use the slowest speed my writer gives which is 16 speed, and I use good quality brand CD-R such as Verbatim, I wonder if it's possible to tell my writer to use 8 speed, but I don't get that option as 16 speed is the slowest that comes up on the drop down menu. I was thinking of removing the DVD rom drive, and just use the one drive for reading and writing, but I have been told that I could easily have 2 internal writers on my system, but I am confused as to how would I let Nero know which one is the source for reading and which one is the source for writing being that they may be the same brand of writer. I would actually prefer to remove the older rom drive completely, but I don't have a spare bezel cover to block the space where the rom drive took up. Thoughts please on all of this.
