I am going to buy a new CDRW drive. Which drive do you recommend?
I saw a Sony 48x drive for cheap and was wondering how good they are. I think it only has 2 meg buffer though.

It depends on what you want to do with it, if you want to BACKUP your games ect then get a liteon as they handle Safedisc 2 copy protection.

Yep, lite-ons are usually cheap and good.

As for me, I walk into office stores, comp usa, etc. And pick the cheapest 24x or 40x, (whatever speed I'm looking for) that I can find. These are the kind that usually have no documentation, drives, etc. so it's fun and frustrating all at the same time. But on the plus side, I usually only pay $40 or $50.

(I even found a $45 "generic" 24x in a grocery store once. I was tempted to buy it. Instead I got a 5" black and white tv for $20.:D )

If you do want a cdrw to back up safe disc 2 games go here http://www.fileforums.com/ then scrool down to CD Media World list and pick cd copy protections and utilities and you will see a stickey called Safedisc 2 compatible burners, look in there and it will give you an idea of what other cdrw drives will backup safe disc 2 games. Hope this helps:)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
