I too made 3 coasters when I used my lite-on drive. However I also have a Plextor DVD +- 8X writer. I don't know if it really made a difference but it does work with no problem even in a different computer that has a Lite-On 52X CDRW drive so I know it works.
I used the twinpeaks method with the newest version of Alcohol 120. Using the securerom 4.8 tutorial.
I downloaded a BWA file from copygames or some website like that. (Sorry I dont recall the sight but I got the info from searching here.)
And followed the securerom 4.8 tutorial and sure enough it works without crashing. It took a little bit to spin up in the drive however it loaded and ran fine for hours.
I am using a Lite-on 52X CDRW to play back the copy using the clone cd "hide CDR" settings.
Hope that helps you.
