…SD-R5372. It’s just become too picky with reading and writing media.
Two things I like about it though - it is very good at audio extraction, in fact it is a good, fast reader in general (ie. when making images of protected game CDs). Also, it is a good “two sheep” burner.
Based on these criteria, can someone recommend a suitable replacement? Lite-Ons seem pretty solid, is their reading capability good too? Any other brands to watch out for? (I know about Plextor, of course…)
