We live in South America, so things cost more down here and probably the model
I would specify, if I were in the USA, can't be found here. . I have
had better luck
with burners made by other companies. We have a Sony CD-RW drive, in an old
box and it is still running. Someone on the list told me months ago he doesn't
order Teac drives and  I think he said he'd had good luck with LG
drives. I bought
an LG DVD burner for my wife's box. No more Teac stuff for me.  Sony
had Diagnostics
for the CD-RW drive and it checked out OK.
