[QUOTE=geno888;2535991]If you can find a genuine Plextor you can get reliable scans.
Otherwise, the only alternative is a Lite-On drive. Too bad, the most recent models use different chipsets, and most stores don’t specify what chipset is in the drive, so there is a risk that you get a drive not suitable for scans :([/QUOTE]
I disagree on the plextor part, benq or liteon drives can do the same job very well.
Most of the stores simply want to sell, and 99% has no idea about what chipset the drive is using.
Both drives, the samsung and the benq slowdown at the same place, so either this was a bad disc, or a bad burned disc, the only way to find out where the problems is, is to burn the disc again in another drive. Give your liteon a chance, after all you will only loosing one disc.
