    Windows 8 won't support burning CD's.



    Recently installed an upgraded sound system in our boat. Changed out to bigger, and added more JL marine speakers, high-end marine Alpine head unit and amp.
    The former unit is going into one of the kids trucks.

    What an amazing difference in sound quality on this unit. Even my Elvis and Billy Joel sounds like they just recorded their tunes on modern digital equipment.

    I missed the vinyl days when ya spun a tune or two, sit at the record player and read the album cover and inside pages while the music played.
    But I can live with it with Sat radio, CD's and iPods.

    Wife just plugs her phone it to the head unit, kids hit Aux and the boats TV's play through it too.

    It's all come so far,, and evidently moving ahead.
    Microsoft just announced Windows 8 will not support burning nor playing CD's according to * Fox Business news.
    Now that stinks.

    Still like the quick access and sound of a CD.
    I had read sometime back, that CD's were a long ways off because they hadn't figured out a way to get the CD 100% flat for proper recording.
    An engineer with 3M read the same story and went to 3M company management and asked for some development money to find a way to produce a 100% flat CD.

    3M is in the flat products business if ya think about it. Their stuff is always good, and they soon figured out a way to do it. 3M then patented the process, and they get a royalty on every CD produced today according to the book "In search of Excellence".

    Early versions of Windows didn't burn CDs from the OS...you had to have a third party program to do it.

    Maybe that's the case with with Win 8?

    Seriously though, on my Windows machines I always use "Exact Audio Copy" (EAC) anyway.

    Are there risks to installing Windows 8 Consumer Preview?


    Yes. Windows 8 Consumer Preview is stable and has been thoroughly tested, but it?s not the finished product. Your PC could crash and you could lose important files. You should back up your data and you shouldn't test Windows 8 Consumer Preview on your primary home or business PC. You might also encounter problems like:
    • Software that doesn?t install or work correctly, including antivirus or security programs.
    • Printers, video cards, or other hardware that doesn?t work.
    • Difficulty accessing corporate or home networks.
    • Files that might become corrupted.
    You should carefully balance the risks and rewards of trying out the Windows 8 Consumer Preview before you install it.



    Beta sux!

    Well if they do dump CD and everything goes to streaming they better upgrade the format, because if you are really listening to the music, not just drinking and partying to it, MP3 sucks.
    I guess I am just old, but I am with Ross in that the warmth and depth of a good mix on vinyl beats the snot out of digital music, and CD sounds 5x better than MP3.

    Hey Ross if you like the band Boston, and didn't know it Sholz went through the first two albums early in 2010 and remastered them...on CD...the sound is much improved, you can hear the drums and the percussion is crystal clear, a live experience in a perfect studio with no crowd noise is what it sounds like..
    worth buying IMHO.

    As reported on Fox Business News.
    Did you read some place that it does?
