    I got a Lite-On 52x that goes through them in less than five minutes longer than it would take to copy an unprotected disc. They're cheap, and they handle error-skipping well.

    Plextor drives were very good at this 2 years ago, maybe they still are.

    Ive recently got a plextor
    c/w latest firmware
    it gives me regular bsod's
    and the cd tray is really flimsy

    IMHO its a POS

    alcohol 120% is what i use, along with clony to find out what cd protection it's using.
    saved me from having to buy 2nd copy of the game, cd got all scratched, but cd writer could copy all the files.

    Lite-on or Plextor really.

    I've only used Lite-on on all my machines.
    Though they didn't have a dvd writer when I purchased one 2yrs ago.

    ive had both lite on and plextor, lite on is the best, plextor was good until safedisc 2.51 came out then it could never copy it. btw that was my plextor 16x drive.

    I have an NEC combo DVDRW/CD-RW ... it burns at 16x max ... but I don't really need it any faster ... and I've had no problems with it ... copying data or copy-protected discs.
