My Lite-On 401S needs to be replaced. It’s drive tray seems to be popping DVDs out when it ejects, so that they sometimes get stuck, so before I damage a DVD, I better get a new drive.
Anyway, this weekend I tried an expensive $120 Plextor drive, which wouldn’t even buffer. And then a $80 LG GSA-H10L (BestBuy is probably overpricing this stuff too) and after 4 burns it already made a coaster out of one of my DVDs.
Not really sure why I have such bad luck with burners, but my Lite-On 401S hasn’t made a coaster for as long as I can remember, so I’m gonna stop messing around with these expensive drives that don’t work and order a Lite-On off of NewEgg.
My question though is that there are so many models of Lite-On that I’m not sure what is the latest and greatest.
