What about Dvd Toshiba Sd-M1712?

Some questions:

1)What can you tell me about this DVD drive?
2)Can it read 99 mins CD?
3)Can it read in RAW mode?
4)Is it better than Lite-on LTD1648?

finally, 5)What is the best (C2, RAW, bypassing protection) drive in stores now?

Hey there dosexmachina

  1. I got one
  2. Yup
  3. Dunno , never tried. I think it can
  4. It can read DVD-RAM as well , i doubt the liteon drive can
  5. why the other 4 questions when you were about to ask this one anyway ? I like my toshiba , never failed to read anything i have. If there would be extreme problems reading things , i’d read them in my liteon writer.

Please don’t crosspost.

Can you try to read something in RAW mode?
That feature is the most important in a drive IMHO.

Sorry for the crossposting, but I thought that no one would have replied me.

I can’t check it, but my LiteOn 165 claims that it can read DVD-RAM.

Also, my Toshiba 1502 reads Gigarec 1.2x discs, while someone else’ Toshiba 1612 fails. Don’t know about the 1712.

The LiteOn drive can read Gigarec 1.2x discs.
