  1. #1

    Default Looking for the best burner?

    I was wondering if this model is a good burner for making 1:1 back-ups,
    48X/12X/48X CD-RW DRIVE LTR-48246S

    Lite-on Black 48x24x48x IDE CD-Rewriter with Nero 5 Software, OEM
    ONLY $56

    I am looking at it on ebay because im looking for a black faced burner. If anyone could help i would greatly appriciate it. Thank You!!!!

    well, i have a 40125S 40x12x48x. I compared features, and they are similar. So therefore I would recommend this burner. I haven't had a problem burning anything that is burnable so far.

    but of course, some people are going to suggest plextor :lol:

    I have Lite-On LTR - 52246S and thing is perfect model for writing. What about Plextor?, i read that drives on hi-Speed(16x, 24x and more) not correct write CD (about Correct EFM-Encoding);
    DATAs writes correctly. But Plextor is good drive, and you need more money if you want it.

    I have a Lite-On LTR40125W upgraded to 48125W (by flashing the firmware);
    hasn't let me down once when it comes to copying protected discs... (ok, i didn't try starforce )

    What exactly does the end letter of the liteon burner denote (S/W)? Colour?

    *g* I don't think it's the color, Andareed. When Alcohol's DPM was first released, it worked with a 40125S but not with a 40125W. Or so they said.

    In addition, when I flashed my burner's firmware from 40125W (40x) to 48125W (48x);
    I always read that it does NOT work for the 'S' series, only for the 'W' series. I don't know how much of that is true though.

    All the specs on liteon's apply to both 40125W and 40125S. I cannot see any difference.

    The only difference between W and S drives is the flash rom. You can flash the W firmware in S drives and the S firmware in W drives.

    So is S better than W (or vice versa)? Why do two types even exist?

    No, why would a drive be better, just because thereґs a different flash rom built in? I donґt know why LiteOn releases the drives with different names and even release different firmware - they just could flash and name the drive 40125 (i.e. without additional letter) regardless which flash rom is used.
