>So who is second in quality behind plextor? Are they as bad?

Who is to say plextor is number 1? it is a myth that has been put about for so long (it was probabbly true in the early days of cd ripping, but things have come on now and cd ripping is a piece of cake for most cd drives). I have plextor drives and when the going gets tough there are other drives that perform better.

I have long known that plextor is a shit company, I once approached them asking for the plextor specific command to disable the first session, they refused and even though I reversed engineered it I couldn't be bothered implementing it, if they want everyone to use plextools only then fine by me, perhaps I would have got a legal letter. Like I said a shit company.

You could have asked Andre Wiethoff about it ... biggrin.gif

Anyway, LG Electronics refuses to give support (in terms of drive command set specs) to the Feurio! developers ... I guess every company has its drawbacks.

I'm sure Plextor people were really surprised to hear that they had an option
to "disable the first session" smile.gif

Seriously, he really reverse engineered it himself. He did that during the few hours
between his post asking about the commands and my post giving them out, both
in this thread http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=17170

Gee, pretenders used to have better memories...
