Greetings oh masters of the optical media :bow:

Is the sony DDU1612 DVD-Rom a rebatched lite-on?
Is it also a good ripper\reader?

I have a nec burner which is said to be a good ripper but I don’t want to void my warranty flahing it with a non official firmware…

thanks in advance for your help!! :wink:

Thanks for your info…

And is this drive a good ripper???

I would like to know

all lite-on drives are good rippers. and with patched firmware, they’re even better.
