Until you use a really crappy CDRW drive... The creative 4224 is the
worst junk I have ever had the misfortune of using... It makes these
lovely cracking sounds whenever I put a disk in with the slightest bit
of dust... Grrr.... I'm planning on using the drive and the stack of
useless CDR media it destroyed for target practice REAL SOON NOW!

The Sony Spressa drives are quite nice however :)
