Hey Guys…

My faithful Lite-On 166S has died… drive motor… can hear bearing moving… (ouch)

Anyways, I had it paired with a Lite-On 52246S for back-ups 1:1 copies etc…
Anyways… figure since I got to replace my reader maybe i shoud just go for a new DVD writer… so the big question is…

What good for an all purpose reader/writer … 1:1 game backups, system backups and maybe the occassional movie…

Thanks…

Best writers for backups and defeating copy protections are still the LiteOns.
But their DVD write quality isn’t that great. :-/

Yeah, I’ve been getting the feeling that a seperate reader is still needed… even for DVD ripping…
Guess I’ll grab another 166 or 167 and get a DVD burner later on…
