IS there ANY DVD ROM THAT?

Reads DVD+R or DVD -R up to 16X???

Thy all read R media max up to 12X

yep my Aopen (see sig) will read +R or -R up to 16x by running NeroDrive speed (just a small app) and selecting 16x

(just a small app)

Can you explain that???

What app

And how does aopen read scrached, and damaged dvd media, does it have a good error correction???

look here www.cdspeed2000.com and look for ‘Nero Drive Speed’ and there is an Aopen thread around here somewhere that should answer all your questions
