Are these any good?

The DVD/CD Drives that are on my computer are:

BENQ DVD DD DW1640
LITE-ON CD-ROM LTN-5295

I was just wondering if these are any good for making working back-ups of most copy protected games?

Which protections will these do best and which ones will not be possible at all.

CD-ROM players can’t make backups, but the Benq should be capable of doing safedisc stuff. Don’t expect lots from it, just test it with various media (ReWritables of course, saves a lot of coasters) and copy protections.

BenQ. Although I bet the LiteOn is a good reader…:slight_smile:

Maybe Plextor Premium is the best for this, but it’s also costly :frowning:

Thanks Peoples

“peoples”? Does that word exist in the english language?? I’m confused…


#7

Either a typo, or Aussie slang…Stroppy would know :bigsmile:


#8

It does… it came in with the rappers music


#9

Yes…“peoples” is slang used in Oz by some “peoples”.

My recommendation for the best DVD Burner is and will always be the Plextor 716A. After Plextor made that model they started making cheaper versions to keep up with the market. Best Buy sold them out at $89.00, they had six left I bought them all. Today when you can find one they are about $ 139.00. :bow:

No in Australya (thats how it sound when we talk) we say “Mate”. There was a thing back a few months ago where we were banned from saying it in parliament and stuff. Other things we say are like: For Thank you, we say: “No F*ckin Worries Mate” Nobody here knows how to say one sentence with out swearing.

Thanks for the recomendation about the DVD burner, I will probably be need ing anew one soon so I will have to get that model.

Cheers!

Now I know even more…
