Since my Ultraplex40max is maxed out at 20X, what cd reader would be best overall for burnin on the fly at 40X with my plexwriter40?? Anyone here actually do it? I experimented with a friend's Liteon 163h drive, which reads cds at 48X, but the drive didnt seem to keep up with my writer at 40X. Obviously I want to burn without the Burn proof kickin in. I'm not really sure why the Liteon DVD drive couldnt handle it, maybe because it was an IDE drive?? and not a SCSI?? By the way, I made sure all the setups were optimal, ie. DMA enabled, writer on master, reader on slave etc....
Feedback would be appreciated!!!
