Okay... depending on what media you use, I can sort of understand how some people might consider the PX-712a a good burner... but you can't seriously consider it a good reader can you?!?! It's almost as picky as my old POS Pioneer 105S slot load DVD-ROM drive

Of course, this is actually one of the ONLY things I *LIKE* about this drive really
This fact makes it an exellent testing device since I know just about ANYTHING will be able to read the disc if the PX-712a can
