I'm looking for an internal SATA ODD that will primarily be used to rip CDs.
I want the drive to support the following CD ripping features (from most important to least):
2) Excellent C2 error reporting
3) HTOA extraction (Hidden Track One Audio = track 1 index 0)
4) No audio caching
5) Ability to read entire first & last tracks (either: no read sample offset; positive read sample offset with lead in overread capability; negative read sample offset with lead out overread capability; or lead in & lead out overread capability)
6) CD Extra support (data track after audio tracks)
7) Audio tracks after data track ripping (used by some games on CD)
Are there any CD ripping features that I haven't listed?
The following are preferable bonus features:
Blu Ray reading
Blu Ray writing
Support for more formats (BDXL, etc.), more features (quality scans), with better quality, at faster speeds & lower access times is also preferred.
The first priority, however, remains CD ripping, so if no Blu Ray drives support all the CD ripping features, I'd rather have a DVD drive that does. If no Blu Ray or DVD drives support all the features, then I'd prefer a CD drive that does.
