LiteON LTD-166S DVD drive

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.
