Help me to choose the best DVD Burner for my needs (with LightScribe)

Hello all!

P.S. - no one is reply for this post in CD and DVD Burners so i think maybe this is the place. tnx!

Im having a hard time pick a new DVD Burner.
My Optiarc AD-5170A is no longer working good. he cannot recognize some of the media and burn them.
i need a new one.

i will tell u what im doing with my burner (the most important) that way can know what burner is recommended for me:

  • a lot of audio rips (Original CDs and DVDs from 1994 till now) with EAC (Secure Mode) with Accurate Stream and C2 Error Correcting.

*Video Decrypting with DVD Decrypter/DVDFab

*Burning Data/PS2/ISO Games and APPs on DVD+R and DVD-R on various media.

*Burning Audio on CDR on various media.


The bad thing on my burner are:

*my current burner did rip audio very well most of the time but sometimes very slow.
*the burning wasnt good (1/4 of the time the burned cds/dvds had a alot of errors that cannot be fixed.
*very very noisy.
*verfiying after burning with Nero has failed a lot of times.
*seek times are not good.
*very picky about media.


The new drive need to have those:

*an option to change the booktype from DVD+R and DVD+R DL to DVD-ROM/RAM. (Must)

*a LightScribe option (Recommended).

*can report C2 Errors for Audio (Must).

*Fast DVD Decrypting (very Recommended).

*Deep Error Scan with Nero CD-DVD Speed and KProbe.


tnx from advance to the freaks of CDFREAKS!

Since you now have a good response in your original thread I’m going to close this one. Posting the same message in different forums confuses people trying to help, and is against forum rules.

Good luck on your hunt for a new burner.
