Best dvd rom read?

i just bought a gateway 835gm. and when i try to do direct copies of dvd’s it takes forever because of the buffer underrun protection.tested the read speed of my dvd rom(hitachi) and the fastest read i can get out of that is much for 16x read.i need a dvd rom that can actually read at 16x (or close to) so i can actually burn at question is what is the fastest dvd reader i can buy? thanks

On the fly copying at 16x is not recommended.

The question of what DVD-ROM to get has been addressed many times before, and there are quite a few very recent threads on this topic. Please do a search (or just look at some of the recent threads of the Optical Drives forum). Closing thread.
