It looks like it’s time to retire my old Litey DVD-ROM (see rig below in sig) I use for ripping. I had it for many years and used to get great speeds off of it but now it has lowered to about 4-5x. Further it has been choking on copying some basic unportected titles lately, so i think it’s days are truley numbered.
I am looking for a drive for fast but accurate ripping capability of DVD video’s for my backups of movies. Also, if any drive is particularly good are ignoring protections thats a plus, my litey now has actually ignored just about every protection I seen others to report problems with.
I do not care if it’s loud because I do not watch DVD’s on my PC I use for burning.
Please post all suggestions and thanks in advance.
