Well you maybe should consider buying a DVD burner instead of a CD burner.
I have both dirves and the Premium outperforms the CRW F1 in every way. Premium burns faster with better quality and reads absolutely anything you throw at it.
First scan is a Verbatim 52x burned on Yamaha. The second one on Premium. Same media.
You wont find a drive thats able to make backups of Starforce 3 without problems. But Safedisc 3, Laserlock, Securom, Ringprotech shouldn't be the problem with Premium.
CRW F1 has even problem with Safedisc 2.51!
