Mount Rainier








I purchased the LiteOn LTR-48125W for a couple of reasons:

  • Mount Rainier support

  • Writing by CAV/P-CAV rather than CLV (I never liked the CLV burning with the LiteOn 24102B or 32123S)

If you're not sure if your CD-RW is Mount Rainier compatible, goto CD Speed homepage and download Ahead's Nero Infotool and you should see a tick next to Mount Rainier.




What are my first initial thoughts about Mount Rainier, well unfortunately mixed.


If a Mount Rainier supported CD-RW like the LiteOn LTR-48125W is installed on just the one PC and that's all you have, GREAT.

If you're like me, I have 3 PC's on LAN at home and various PC's at my work and it becomes a little more annoying having to install PACKET software on PC's, some without a CD-RW.


Even if you have InCD and EasyWrite Reader installed on a PC, if the CD-RW was formatted using CD-MRW, the CD-RW can READ the files from the disc, but can not WRITE. I know this is obvious, but it is still annoying. Because of this, I'll have to decide whether to use CD-MRW formatted discs or just plain CD-RW which can be READ and WRITTEN to by all PC's CD-RW's.

I'm extremely disappointed that Windows XP Pro with SP1 Beta 1073 still doesn't have default Mount Rainier support.

Well onto my observations, click on the buttons at the Top.
