Thinking of buying one of these

are these any good for backing up games
{HA 444} LITE-ON 48X24X48X CD-RW & 16X DVD-ROM COMBO Drive

It all depends on what you are trying to backup. If you are trying to back up the games without any emulation then the LiteOn is good for safedisc and Plextor is good for SecuRom. If you don’t care about emulation then it wouldn’t matter that much. I would stick with name brands though, like LiteOn, Pioneer, and Plextor.

ok then as long as that drive is ok i will get one and thanx for the reply

for combo drives Toshiba is very good also
