Feedback on the Pioneer BDR-212V drive has been unanimous, Best drives for DVD burning on the market!


Since we released the exclusive Pioneer BDR-212V drive in 2020, the feedback has been extremely positive. We’ve received so many appreciative reviews and compliments on how great the 212V is at burning DVD’s! They were impressed with the burn quality and lifespan of the 212V drive, making it their preferred choice to burn, not just Blu-ray media, but especially for DVD media. The concept may seem out of whack, given that it’s a Blu-ray drive, that is backwards compatible to burn DVD’s and CD’s. So why would someone pay more to burn DVD’s?

The reason being, is that the 212V drive is a much more robust drive that offers 2 to 3 times longer lifespan than comparable CD/DVD drives. Additionally, it has an enhanced firmware focused on providing greater support for DVD burning. In our research, those performing constant DVD burning/duplication had higher failure rates with standard CD/DVD drives after only a few months of operation in comparison to very little to no bad burns during the same period with the Pioneer 212V drive. Plus, we received complaints from customers about the heavy burn-in marks on the recording side of the disc from those using the CD/DVD drives, saying they looked unprofessional. The BDR-212V virtually eliminates both concerns through a multiprong advancement in both hardware and firmware through a collaboration with Pioneer. The 212V drive can be rebooted when seeing higher failure rates to return to peak performance and it virtually eliminates the uneven symmetrical burn-in marks on the disc’s recording side of single layer recordable DVD’s (often referred to as Donut Rings).

If you are tired of wasting money by constantly replacing your drives, tossing out failed DVD’s, or just not happy with the overall performance, we are supremely confident you will be thrilled with the Pioneer BDR-212V drive, offered exclusively through Vinpower or a Vinpower selling partner.

Digital Audio CD-R are better for recording Music/Audio compared to standard CD-R


What is Digital Audio CD-R and why should I care? For most people, at this stage in the recordable CD evolution, there’s only one type of CD-R and you can record anything on to it. For the most part, that’s correct, you can use a computer drive to record data, music, video, etc. onto any standard CD-R media. There may be varying degrees of quality between brands, but a CD is a CD.

That’s not actually the case. Although all recordable CD’s can record and play/view any digital content, Digital Audio CD-R’s are specifically made for music/audio content. It doesn’t mean that’s all you can record onto them, but Digital Audio (“DA”) CD-R, also known as Music CD-R, are specially tuned for recording and playback of audio content. In fact, for many standalone CD recorders, they can only use Digital Audio CD-R or the systems will not recognize the media and either won’t record or will fail the disc during the duplication procedure. If you use a standalone recorder for better audio recording resolution, then Digital Audio CD-R’s are often your only option.

Maybe recording CD’s is not a factor because your computer drive can record audio content as well as data. However, there are still a number of players, like car CD players, or any number of CD only players that are very particular about the media they support or have a harder time recognizing standard CD-R, whereas Digital Audio CD-R has better playback compatibility with those players.

If you’re an audiophile or just don’t want to take any chances with recording or playback issues, then I would recommend using Digital Audio CD-R’s or all of your music/audio recordings.

Even if you already ripped your audio CD’s to mp3 files, better to rip them again as .WAV or FLAC files for a true music experience


The ability to rip audio music files from a CD onto your computer has been available for around 20 years now. If fact, many like myself, used iTunes to transfer content from their CD collection to their iTunes library years ago. However, the problem is that iTunes and many other ripping software often compressed the files tremendously to make them smaller and easier to store. That compression may make it easier to store a lot of music onto a hard drive without using much space, but to do so, you inevitably will give us significant sound quality at the same time. Sure, the song will sound fine, but when you compare it to the original uncompressed CD, the original audio CD sound quality is much richer and fuller.

As hard drive capacities became bigger and bigger and the price dropped lower and lower, capacity was no longer a luxury. Now with multi-Terabyte hard drives available for very little money, everyone can afford to upgrade their music collection to the true lossless audio files with .WAC or flac files. Then you can hear the music the way the artist intended and get the full auditory experience!

With Vinpower’s low cost RipBox or high capacity Cronus, you can rip your CD’s again with virtually no hassle! You wouldn’t watch a movie with chunks of background scenery missing, so why listen to partial music? Upgrade your music library today!

After a year of being isolated at home watching TV, we’re finally seeing an opportunity to get out and create your own content!


If you’re like me, after a year of sheltering at home, you’ve watched so many scripted TV shows and movies, that you feel like you truly are living in the Matrix! Now that we are seeing multiple COVID vaccines available and restrictions easing, I’m taking the opportunity to safely travel and do more activities outside the house with my family. Of course I want to capture these happy times as we have a whole new appreciation for life outside our bubbles. Afterwards, I will copy those videos and photos onto discs so that I can keep archival copies that can be passed on and enjoyed for years to come.

Optical discs are the best method to store your digital content, especially photos, videos, movies and music. Be it CD’s, DVD’s, or Blu-ray, optical discs are more reliable than flash, have a longer shelf life than a hard drive and easy for virtually anyone to play. In general, you simply insert the disc in the player and most often it starts automatically. No searching for files, accidentally deleting them, or negotiating whether you should delete other files to make room for whatever new item you want to store.

Make new happy memories that you can cherish for a lifetime. Vinpower can help provide you all the tools you need to burn discs quickly, reliably, and with a long archival life to ensure maximum enjoyment now and well into the future.
