some users had serious problems with DAE on rather modern Liteon drives, IIRC. You might have a look into our Liteon burners section. Also, most modern Liteon burners cache audio data, which is, according to the author of EAC, not so good.
My best DAE drives are
LG GSA 4163B
Optiarc AD 7200A
Unfortunately, all these are only museum pieces now.
For modern hardware, go for a Renesas LG (check out our LG burners forum for models - be aware that LG's naming scheme is not really customer friendly). Or get an Optiarc.
