Well, I went and bought an Aopen CRW5232
Backup works in the burner.
Fails on by dvd drive - Panasonic (Matsushita) SR-8588
I used Alcohol 1.4.8, BW v126.96.36.199 was useless! I didn't try the "tweaker" I have to admit.
I'll see if a firmware upgrade makes any difference (currently R1.03) ...
I also notice that the AOpen was blindingly fast at reading the SD2 errors using Alcohol (must be the fastest). It's probably worth keeping just for that!?! [/B]
I'm glad you had success.
I'm using fw 1.05 now, and that sorts out a few little problems.
For Safedisc 2.9 and onwards, I find I get best results with Blindwrite 188.8.131.52, I'm not a big fan of Blindwrite 5 or even Alcohol.
Make sure you read SD discs at MAX and write at 40-48x
