Not completely was I wrong.
Okay I was wrong about the correct EFM and half wrong about the warranty. (Lite on gives 2 years after the manufacturing date according to my shop. Plextor will give it after the sales date)
But how about the lead in and out tricks every plex can.
It seems that only plextor can do it but no Lite On at this moment except maybe for their 24102B drive.
So anyone has got an old copy protected version of HIM's Razorblade Romance (german version. On the CD itself states that it is protected)
And tried to rip it with his 24102B drive.
This CD is protected with Cactus Datashield V1.0
As far as I know Cactus Datashield V1.0 can only be copied with a plex as a reader.
So can anyone with this disk. (not the unprotected ones. Only the copied protectioned one) and a lite-on 24 burner show me that it can be ripped with the burner
Because what do you think that Midbar will do with a new version of their Cactus. Use more of the first or the second version ?
Well the first was a worked better as their second sollution. So they probally will make an version which will be more based on the first as on the second. Or could combine the 2 techniques. However then they still have a problem with the plextor material.
And then there still is the cd text problem. A friend of mine bought the lite-on and with a lot of sofware he can't write CD text and there were some people here who had the same problems. So how about that one ?
So it seems that the plex still has a small advantage if it can read laserlock's correct now. I know most people won't mind. But last days the industry seems to be doing everything to do something about correct ripping of audio discs so I do mind.
So anyone tell me can the lite on do it yes or no
Or can anyone tell me if the plex does laserlock's reading now
I will buy the one that can do it all (Safedisk 1/2, Cactus Datashield 1/2, Securom, Libcrypt, Laserlock 1/2) and I think that the plextor 24/10/40 will be first and maybe the only drive that can do it. If the both can do it at allmost the same time I offcourse will buy the lite on, because it is cheaper.
So Sherman & Nico and the other lite-on lovers; It seems that there maybe actually a copy protection the lite-on cannot copy, but every plex does.
So talking about that lite-on can copy everything is a bit to early unless you have checked it. I am trying to get it checked myself but it will take quite some time. However if anyone can show that the lite on can do it then there is one problem solved. I have checked the lite on 12102b and that drive could not do it
a12 speed SCSI plextor and the 16/10/40A plexwriter could do it.
So I think it will not do it but maybe with new firmwares it does. Since it is just a software matter for the burner. Plextor have upgraded all their drives for it when cd's with the protection came out even for their old drives so at that point lite on can do the same.
