Just got a Liteon 24102b wow great drive reads the bad sectors on SD2 protected CD’s a lot faster than my Philips 1610a does. must be the the EMF encoding the Liteon does properly.
Emporer battle for dune SD2 protected
Time taken to read image file to disk with CloneCD 184.108.40.206
Philips 1610a : 1hr 41min
Liteon 16102b : 5mins 11sec
But when i upgraded the firmware on the Liteon from
5s07 to 5s54 the same read took over 7mins. Has anyone done any testing to see which firmware ver is best to use.
