I was looking on the net for suggestion for the best readers. I already have a NEC-3500, and it works great for writing cd's and dvd's, however some of my old collections are on old, and many cases cheap CD media, that some drives fail to read.
I found that one of the Aopen DVD rom drive is the best in terms of DVD error correction and it's a great DVD reader, but i'm after the best CD reader drive ever made
(not that it might be an cdrw, dvd or even dvdrw drive that just happens to be the best CD media reader, and the dvd capability is not important)
I'm looking for a drive which will be the best at (in order of importance):
-good at reading scrached/cheap/old/poor quality CD media
-good at reading all the copy protected CD's
-good at reading dvd's
-good at dvd copy protection's
what i dont care about:
-i dont mind waiting a while longer, so speed is not a priority at all
-i dont care how much it costs (well...no i dont want to spend $10000, but it has to fit standard PC)
-scsi or ide or even sata - I dont really care
-i dont care wheher it has a cd/dvd writing capability
Thanks in advance for any input.
