Are you positive it isn't a media issue? Just because a disc burns well in a Lite-On CD-RW drive doesn't mean it will burn well in a Lite-On CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive. :wink:

I don't have any problems with my LG combo drives. I will admit, the writing quality is slightly better with my straight LG burners as opposed to the combos, but the difference is negligable.

I too am happy with the 1 combo drive I have.I complained alot about my samsung when I first got it last year but now I like it(many firmwares later).It doesnt do many discs at 52X most at 48X but it burns to the memorex high speed cdrws no problem. Thats a feat none of my other burners can accomplish. I have a ton of them. Friends gave them to me after they couldnt burn them on their drives either.

I have the Samsung SM348B. I think it's a great drive. Burns CDR/Ws very well and is a speedy CD writer/reader and fast DVD reader. It even reads DVD+R/W, I don't think was an advertised feature of the drive.
