I first tried the 7173A before some time and I took it back because it gave me some strange results. One show I am doing for the moment for a local TV Station it plays on air directly from the DVD. That’s the best test I can think of. And LG’s almost never gave me problems. The last trailer I gave out was burned with 7200S. It was fine.
P.S. When I close the port drive it makes some strange noise like a plastic spinning. Is that the case with your also, Dee?
P.S.2 For me a good drive is the drive that burns at lower speeds as well. And I tested Pio 212, Samsung 203, Liteon 20A1S, LG 62N, LG 20 NS10 and this one which seems to be the best but for the moment.
