    Re: Time for a 2018 drive accuracy list?

    Have you tried to repair the drive? Clean the lens (damp cloth with slightly soapy water or if necessary Isopropyl.) Go easy so as not to mess up the delicate suspension. Clean and lightly lubricate the rails the lens assembly rides on. Obviously, clean any dust or dirt elsewhere inside.

    Many drives fail because of these simple mechanical issues.

    Hi schmidj,

    Thanks for the reply :-)

    I have not. It appears not to be a mechanical failure. It will accept the disc and spin attempt to read but after ~90 sec to 2 minutes the orange light of death flashes without any data being sent to the OS. To be perfectly honest, just prior to failure I had unplugged the power supply and SATA leading in because I needed to clone a drive and did not have the time to buy an external drive enclosure. :-) doh! doh! doh! :-)
    Thanks again,

    Should I hold out hope for a 2018 drive list?

    In the meantime the top 3 sellers on Amazon are

    1 Asus 24x DVD-RW Serial-ATA Internal OEM Optical Drive DRW-24B1ST (Black)
    2 Lite-On 24X SATA Internal DVD+/-RW Drive Optical Drive IHAS124-14
    3 LG Internal 24x Super Multi with M-DISC Support DVD Burner (GH24NSC0B) Bundle with Nero 12 Essentials Burning Software + Cable Kit

    Does anyone have any experience/feedback on any of these suspects?

    I had good luck with the LiteOn iHAS124-14 F. It is a fast and accurate drive. It is an OEM model, so no cables, manual, etc. Should cost $15- $20 new. But I don't know if all iHAS124-14 are F or not. There is for example an older iHAS124 W, that is accurate but much slower. You can see the various series and their firmwares at http://www.firmwarehq.com/Lite-On/drives.html You can try asking the seller what series it is or ask them for a picture of the label.

    I didn't try any of the other drives.

    Thank you Ham,

    I appreciate both the input on the LiteOn and the thought on checking into the firmware. Will do a little research from the URL you included.

    Thanks again, you did help me

    I vote for an updated list! Even more so a real time list that updates semi frequently.

    Interesting. I just got rid of my Asus DRW-24B1ST drives, because their ability to read and accurately rip was noticeably inconsistent between one another. Scratched CDs were a true foil for them, too. But, here I'm reading 98.8345 % accuracy. May look into that Lite-On as a secondary drive for when my new Plextor PX-891SAF Plus has issues reading a disc. (It's been quirky, though ultimately more precise than the DRW-24B1STs so far)

    Any chance for an update on this 2016 list?? It would be appreciated by at least one.

    three !

    As I rip a lot of discs : Submit AccurateRip Results !.png

    (sorry, I don't know why the upload was disabled)

    I'd like to upgrade the poor drive on my main rig (93.7714 % accuracy, bottom of the list)
