I started to collect PC CD/DVD Games from last years. As the collection grows larger and larger, I feel the need to back up them into CD/DVD images. I only have an old CD writer right now (Benq CRW-5232WI, made in 2004). It is still working fine but I always have trouble dumping some SecuROM protected games (e.g. Judge Dredd: Dredd versus Death) with it. Besides I have quite a few DVD games now so it’s time to get a DVD writer. Do you guys have any recommendation for a DVD drive/writer which is reliable for ripping and burning all kinds of Protected/Non-protected CD/DVD games? Thank you!
I went to a local retail store. They only have new writers like Pioneer DVR-221VXL and ASUS DRW-24D3ST. Are they any good?
