I just purchased a Verbatim VBT481248a CDRW from Fryes, but the face of the drive says 48x16x48. Win 2k SP3 recognizes it as a Cendyne 481648ax, and the drive itself says Model# CW 4802.
After an hour and a half or research it seems pretty clear that this drive is an Accesstek (Optowrite) CW4802 http://www.accesstek.com.tw/products/cw4802.htm
Anyone have experience with this drive? I also have a LiteOn ltr-24102b. The write speed is half that of the LiteOn, but everyone here seems to freak on LiteOns, so should I keep the LiteOn and dump the Optowrite? Best I can tell the LiteOn can do SD2 and the Optowrite can’t (but I haven’t personally tested either).
