I have a LiteOn 451@832s writer. Which failed to read some dvd movies, which are a little bit scratched, dvd-movies which was read in another drive. And I want to buy a DVD-ROM to replace my cd-rom.
I don’t care about dvd-riping speed or general reading speed. An average read speed is enough.
My main requirements are:
- reading compatibility(cd,dvd+,dvd-,dvd-rom)
- to read bad disks/scratched; error correction;
So I want the best dvd-rom reader in terms of reliability on reaading bad disks.
I read on this forum about Lite-on 166 and 167. But I don’t trust them, because I don’t understand how the 166 reader will read what 451S didn’ read.
