Good reader to par with Plextor 40x12x40

I just got the Plextor 40x12x40 , and i also have in my system one Hitachi 24x CDrom and one Hitachi GD8000 DVD .

Do i need something better as reader in order to do on the fly recordings , of Cd’s that the Plextor 40x12x40 can read and write too ?

Is any way, or software ,or comparison table to see what are capable my readers to read ?
Thanks …

A good option for a CD-Rom reader would be the LiteON 52x (model LTN-526, available at http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduct.asp?submit=manufactory&manufactory=1336&catalog=6&DEPA=1&sortby=14&order=1 ) for $28 WITH SHIPPING! It’s a fast drive at a good price.

This is what i was looking for …

Unfortunately its listed my CD-rom ,but not the my Hitachi DVD .
But the Nero drive info it helps allot too .

I can copy on the fly at 40x from a plextor 40tsi or a lite on 40 speed writer (40125w)

Yes the recommendation about to par my Plextor CDRW with one Lite-On CDRW it looks to be the key for the ultimate setup .
There is so many people that they say the same thing ,so i will take it as granted . :slight_smile:

After all they only cost a bit more than a reader, why not?
