i don't like the new LG 52x CD-ROM
i think it's called GCR-8520B
i had the previous model CRD-8521B. crappy performance, inconsistent at reading CDR.
had it replaced and got the newer model - does not support reading sub-channel data info (not too big a deal) and also does not report C2 errors so CD Speed ScanDisc is a no go !!!!
(both of these functions were on the older model...
