You know what - I think that my next burner will be a Plextor. If LITEON decides to play dirty games with the modding community by putting everything we all f****** worked hard for by releasing drives with an even CRAPPIER chipset that disables and renders all the mods and kprobes USELESS then LITEON will lose LOTS of customers, including me. I will go for Plextor next time. This is LITEON's way of saying "we're on to you customers..... now we make drive with not capable of krpobe so customer not know drive be poor burn quality......." I can picture the engineers laughing their guts out saying "we're on to you suckaz!"
,,,,, (btw was just kidding :D)
But seriously here, I would really be disappointed if we lose KPROBE functionality as well as media swap and other tools, which I believe is why most people have gotten their LITEON in the first place.
