hi
i have a liteon ltr24102b http://www.liteonit.com.tw/new_p_e/english--p-rw24102.htm
it has only 2mb buffer but i think its enough
according to elby(creator of clonecd) http://www.elby.ch/english/products/clone_cd/writers/l.html#liteon it has efm
i can commend this one to you
i think the newer cd-writers from liteon have the same features but they are faster -> why not buy a liteon? ( they are cheap, too, i think)

Before I bought my new LiteOn 32123S, I informed myself on the CloneCD HP which recorder is the best to handle SafeDisk 2.x.
As no other manufactor of cd-recorders LiteOn got the best results in making a perfect 1:1 copy of a CD. But as more and more Games-CDs are protected with the new version of SecuROM and ProtectCD 5 the better software for making a 1:1 copy is Alcohol 120%, because it is able to scan the physical structure of the original-CD and emulate it in a virtual cd-drive.

I own a LTR-40125S, and it is a pretty kick ass burner!!! I would recommend you get this. It also has full buffer-underrun and correct efm encoding.

Iґve a LiteOn 24102B and a LiteOn 40125W ocґd to 48125W ... the LiteOn drives are good and cheap, but Plextor drives are very good ... unfortunately they lack the perfect EFM encoding (two CloneCD sheeps) ...
the best buy atm is the LiteOn 52246S - cheap, with 24x CD-RW writing ...

@n3wt:
but does it support win xp

Why wouldn't it? It is software that you have to worry about, not hardware! I use alcohol and nero with it and it is great :)
