Clone CD Information
The Teac drive really does support absolutely everything, aside from DVDs. This should mean that the drive is capable of backing up most types of copy protected discs. The Teac supports Mt. Rainer right out of the box, so if you have any use for it right now, this is a definite plus. Like the Plexwriter, the Teac also supports buffer under run protection to prevent coasters, as well a feature which allows the drive to examine the media onto which it burns and evaluate how well it can handle higher speeds, just like the Plexwriter.
