I am sure this is old news to many of you, but BusLink Drives (at least the 52x24x52) are LiteOn drives. Nero and CloneCD ID’s it as LTR-52246S.
Anyway, I paid $54.94 at Staples.com less $10 off $50 coupon and then $30 rebate. I think $15 bucks to be able to burn SafeDisc2.8 is a nice price. The rebate expired on 7/5/03, and I would have posted sooner if I had been aware of this group. In any case, I am sure that this BusLink drive can be found cheap in the future. Staples item #501614.
