Drive thoughts

I’ve just bought a Lite-on 1653s which I am disappointed with (writing wise) but I like the fast DVD video ripping speed and the Kprobe functions. I also have one more spare IDE connection. So heres a couple of questions to get the ideal writing/copying setup…

  1. Would a DVD reader be faster at ripping video than the Lite-On?
  2. I have also considered the NEC 3520 - with a hacked firmware could this read as fast as the Lite-On?
  3. Are there any other ways of doing Kprobe scans without a Lite-On writer, or is Nero CD-Speed just as good and does it give the same results?

Thanks in advance guys and girls :bow:
