Best DVD reader for crappy dvd media

I recently had an unpleaseant experience with some DVD-R discs I bought which I discovered had no MID code on it at all. The discs I burned aren’t being read very well.

So I figure this is a good time to get a DVD reader. Are there any that have been known to beable to read like everything? or alot?

I’ve heard alot about LiteOn from reading this forum

A LiteOn DVD-ROM or DVD recorder would be an excellent choice for a DVD reader. My BTC 1008 is a great reader as well for the price of a dvd-rom.

My 167T has performed flawlessly and seems to do a great job on questionable discs that I have had trouble with before, plus the codeguys website has a fantastic patched firmware that speeds it up appreciably.
