[QUOTE=larrys2006;2524378]Could you tell me what sata drive is the best all around drive for viewing and ripping movie dvds and reading and writing cd-rw’s. I am looking at these drives.
Samsung SH-S243D, Optiarc AD7240S or AD-7240S-ZR AD-7240S-0B[/QUOTE]
Drives using the mediatek chipset should be the best readers/rippers.
The trouble is they are getting hard to find. Your best bet for reading/ripping is an ASUS DRW-24B1ST or DRW-24B1LT. Both are Lite-On clones and use
the mediatek chipset.
Burning CDRW’s? Good question as I do not burn any RW’s. Hope someone else will chime in.
