I read in a post over at DVDD forums that JVC owns LiteOn. Is this true?
No, that is not true. JVC and Liteon partnered to form JLMS for the sale and support of Liteon's earlier DVD-ROM models. More stuff on JLMS here: http://digi.rpc1.org/Support.htm
AFAIK Lite-on IT is still an independant company.
Thanks for the info, my gut instinct told me the same, but I wanted to make sure:)
