I posted in the pioneer/Asus forum about a problem I’ve been having with my Asus bw-16d1ht. It seems I chose both my drive and media poorly when I made my data disks and now some parts of them seem to be unreadable. I’ll try to use a data recovery program to recover the data but I wouldn’t mind investing in a new optical drive if it can help me recover more data.
I need a really good reader, an optical drive that would perform better then others when it comes to reading the disk. I googled for this with “best optical drive for data recovery” but surprisingly I didn’t find anything. I’m getting the feeling that such a thing might not exist, that maybe all drives have equal reading capabilities. Am I wrong? I don’t mind paying a bit more for a high end drive if that’s what it takes. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
