DVD-R fast read speed



I currently have lite-on LTD163 and an NEC ND-3540A drives. When trying to make exact copies of DVD-Rs, using the quickcopy function in Nero (i.e. direct drive to drive copying), although i select 16x burning, the process still takes 15-16 minutes as my Liteon only reads DVD-Rs at 5-8x instead of 16x. I wanted to know if there are any DVD-ROM drives on the market that can read DVD-Rs at 16x.


Yeah, the Liteon 167D and I think Newegg has one for 20USD Liteon 169 that rips at 16x also.


both are difficult to get hold of in the UKÔÇŽany other suggestions?
