I bought a Lite-On 40125S as the recommended writer based on queries from this board. Unfortunately, I think I got one from the bad “batch” as detailed in several posts in the Lite-On forum. I have some good and some bad discs with unrecoverable errors. All this is on good quality Mitsui or T.Y. media at only 8x or 12x burning speed!
I’m not willing to try another Lite-On, but want another good 2-sheep burner. I’ll use it for anything and everything from music to copying protected games. If I have to weigh the options, copying protected data is more important than protected audio, but burning good music CD’s is important.
Any other recommendations? Considering my issues with Lite-On, having good error correction is apparently a must.
