DRU500A and Safedisk

I just got my sony drive this week, I’ve been spending loads of time transfering my holiday video onto dvd, great results.
Bla bla …Sorry, I’ll get to the point!
My son asked if I could create another backup of Fifa 2002, so i thought i’d try out the new drive! Using CloneCD, i did, and it worked perfect…
I also have a Plex 24x, which COULD NOT copy this game, without a patch of some sort.
My question is… how does this drive handle Safedisk? How does it compare with the LiteOn? Anyone tested its capabilities with Safedisk yet?

Sorry if this questions in the wrong area, it used to be obvious
