Want new cd-rw, seek recommendations

i want to buy a new cd-rw drive that can copy games and protected audio cd’s. please give me the best one for my needs. i was considering the yamaha f1, but i don’t need the graphic burning. thanks for any help.

Yamaha F1 would be your best choice since you mentioned audio cd protection. There is an hardware review at CD Freaks. You’ll need to tick “AWS” in the burn process for Safedisc 2.5.xxx since this burner writes regular bit patterns “almost” correctly, not correctly like> (LiteON, Asus)
