I am attempting to purchase a new DVD-ROM that can read safedisc 3/4 backups. I first ordered a Liteon 167 but received a 16P9S, which cannot. I then ordered a Aopen 1648 and received a Aopen 1648 Pro, which cannot. I then ordered a Sony DDU1612 and received a DDU1622, which cannot.
As you can see I am little fed up with retailers sending random products! :a Looking through the stickies it seems only a Liteon 163 or 166 can read safedisc backups, neither of which can be bought. Can anybody suggest a DVD-ROM drive that can! (Or if anybody knows where I can actually get a 166/DDU1612 from…)
