1.I havent personally heard of SD blacklisting lite-on drives.
2.It blacklists all you listed. You can't fix blacklisting unless you modify and re-write the blacklisted portion of the program.
3.Lite-on DVD Rom drives are wicked for playing SD back-ups, but not for creating images from SD protected titles.
4.Have you tried looking on www.savastore.com? Thats if your UK, I bought my one from there.
5.The lite-on 523252 would be a good choice, if you insist on lite-on.
6.Plextor Premiums can, but the back-up doesnt really work in a lot of drives except for itself, lite-on dvd roms and others.
Try buying a shitty CD-RW Lite-ON DVD Rom drive, and playing your back-up, if you are only interested in CD SecuROM backups and SafeDisc backups.
