Toshiba SD-M1402 or Liteon LTD-163/165. The Toshi 1502 has issues with EC

To be more exact:

Tosh 1502 won’t play any non-perfect backups of SafeDisc 2.

I will stay with my trusty Toshiba XM-6702B for reading and the lite-on 40125S for all other protections, still use the HP9310i for music also:bigsmile:

The Yamaha CRW-F1 and Plextor drives are also excellent and very fast readers when it comes to SafeDisc. SecuRom (SubChannel Data is also no problem).

Is the Yamaha CRW-F1 the BEST drive for GAMES and AUDIO? Would it beat a Liteon CDRW and Plextor CDROM combination?

isn’t the Liteon LTD-163/165 a good subchannel reader too?

Yes they are both good subchannel readers but the Ltd-163 at any rate can’t cope with the very latest securerom protected titles. See this thread . However, whether any other reader can do so either is also in doubt. :frowning:
