I bought a Lite-On LTD-165H 16 speed DVD-ROM a while back and decided that I would just post and say that if you are looking for one, this is a good cheap drive (IMHO). Hopefully this isn't a complete waste and this model is available where ever you are.

Cost me AU$80 which was pretty reasonable and I eaisly found a RPC-1 (region free) firmware for it. Had no problems updating it. I think it actually turns the drive into a LTD-165P or something.

It runs nice and quiet with either CDs or DVDs and the only noticable noise is the initial spin up.

Just thought I'd share.

Does it have any problems reading CD-R's CD-RW's? etc..

My creative is a bag of sh|t it always locks up since I flashed the firmware to de-region it.

And it has problems reading most things, it plays DVD's fine but apart from that no good..

If I try and play an SVCD on it, it's either totally out of sync or just skips all the way through.

Don't buy a creative DVD drive.

Na, all good. I've read several types of CD-R & CD-RW all mint. Even tested it with a DVD-RAM I borrowed off a mate (It claimed it could read it so I thought I'd find out).

Haven't had a chance to test DVD-R/RW yet -- I'm not rich enough Sad

Can't say I've really got into making VCD/SVCDs at the moment so haven't tried them either.
