I’m in the middle of ripping about 1000 CDs and need a burner that’s going to be able to rip everything I can throw at it. Up to now I’ve been using a Samsung SM-348B combo drive(which I gave away thinking all drives were the same - d’oh!) which ripped everything. Then I replaced it with a cheapie Philips DVDR drive from SVP which burns DVDs fine but is terrible for ripping CDs.
I’ve seen from other posts that the Plextor drives are supposed to be good for this, but they are too expensive for me. I’ve been thinking about the Pioneer DVR-111DBK, Samsung SH-S182D/BEBN or the LiteOn SHM-165P6S-09C but I’m open to other suggestions too. So please let me know what you think and help a newbie buy a great CD ripping drive!
