Best drive and reader for copying

hi,
i’d like to know what is the best combo for burning protected cds,
i have clone cd and cdmate, my drive is actually a pioneer dvdrom 106s but i’m thinkin’ of changing it 'cause i know it’s not great.
so tell me what is the best recorder and also the best cdrom reader.
thanks:rolleyes:

for reading
liteon ltd 163
for writing
liteon 24x

I agree with Oaky_88! :slight_smile:

But… :frowning: if you want to copy/extract Cactus Data Shield a Plextor reader would be nice! (because of the way it handles illegal TOC’s and illegal lead-outs)

:smiley:

thats the only thing wrong with the liteon drives
that they cant handle Cactus Data Shield

Does the problem lie with the LTD-163 (reader) not being able to read the Cactus Data Shield, or with the 24102B (burner) not being able to write the data? Or both?

Reader: Plextor PX-40TS (40x SCSI). I heard this drive will extract Cactus Data Shield. (I have never been able to try it)
Writer: Lite-On LTR-24102B (copies everything).

Yep, I copied ‘Loveparade 2001’, protected by CDS100, with the Plextor PX-40TS.
