I bought today my first LiteON drive. It’s a LTD-166S model DVD drive. I found some bad things on this drive:
Some times it creates lot of errors when finishing extracting audio, even with clean CDs.
My BIOS detects it as an UDMA 0 type drive. I have a MSI K7TPro2 motherboard with the latest BIOS version (3.6).
Caches audio data.
Nero won’t recognize it.
This is what I figured out. I don’t think it makes too much noise, and the closing the tray makes a different sound because it uses different technology.
