    180GXP 120GB w/ 8MB when?

    They are selling now in the UK / Europe at Komplett.
  2. In Europe all electrical goods must have 2 year warranties.
  3. Many people say they never have porblems with GXP75 but in the end they learn that within 4 years they WILL fail. Anyway the drive doesnt get any better I found that it will bet worse so backup your stuff FAST and ditch that drive its going to die.

    120 gxp story (rambling, sort of)

    Could it be somthing to do with the glass platers unblanced and causing this noise ?
  5. Thanks Ill give it a try!
  6. I dont know but I have created a DVD-R that was bootable before.. all I need to do is extract the bootable section from the XP disk then stick: win2000 winXP win98 etc All one DVD-R so I dont have to swap looking for my CDs heeh It can be done.. cmn peeps someone must know!
  7. I wanna backup my Windows XP and stick it onto other versions of windows so I have a nice DVD-R. Does anyone know how to extract the bootable portion from the CDR and put it onto the DVD-R with other files ?
  8. Also has some reviews. Anyway I would get a "-" writer because the disks are so cheap! I know a lot of people trying to get you onto the + format but dont.. its not as compatible and is more expensive as they are trying to control the market.

    CDR Media quality

    TDK are one of the poorest media around ask anyone in the cdr newsgroups. Mitsui & Verbatim are kings of of media.

    Why are there hardly any Turn-based RPGS on the PC ? PC games developers do nothing but dish out first person after first person ...
  12. I got a better idea.. why not buy an X-Box.. and get it chipped ? Its got a 733 P3, Geforce 3 1/2, DVD drive. Plus it has native Widescreen, Pal60 and Dolby 5.1 plus remote to handle your DVDs. A divx player has been released for it...but its currently in beta.. but I think that it can output a picture better than any TVout card due to its video encoder/decoder chips. Also its small, cool.. and is currently getting hacked to bits!

    What is best to decrease compile time?

    1.4Ghz... I can tell you I have compiled Linux kernels and MAME.. and they are LARGE.. most of the time its in the CPU that does most of the work... so another vote for a 2Ghz CPU.

    Feature request: Do you think you can make it test DVD-R disks ? Or if someone knows of any to benchmark my drive Pioneer 116.
