Hi all, ok i have a benq dw1650 and it pretty reliable as far as burning goes. But for reading well it can’t even read its own dics sometimes.
Heres is what has been my experiances. All i do is burn dvd’s copy dvd’s or burn games (mostly on dvd). I have found media that doesn’t fail me, kyhper media. Never burn a coster with it. I got so Ritek media once and about 80% didn’t burn and the couple that didn’t aren’t readable. Must have been a bad batch or something because i didn’t have aproblem with it before.
I also have burned some dvd-rw’s that with my benq that it can’t read itself. My 10yr acer dvd-rom can read them better then my benq.
So since my benq isn’t treating me well in reading i want to get a drive for reading/ripping and use my benq for burning. I don’t care about speed just want the reader to be able to read bad disc, scratched disc’s etc. well. Which drive should i be looking to get?
Looked around the form and seen that lite-on is supposed 2 have good readers and saw something about gettin a 5s or 6s series. Are these one of the better readers?
