    Some drive-related questions

    Hi,

    I own a Asus BC-12D2HT drive, which I'm thinking of maybe upgrading, due to it missing some features.

    I'm looking at an Asus BW-16D1HT, and a Asus BW-16D1H-U. The first, which also is number 1 at the CD drive accuracy list from 2019, is an internal drive, while the second is an external USB 3.0 drive, of the sort needs boath AC-power and USB-power. The external drive is not on the accuracy list, but since the model numbers are so similar, I'm wondering if it's just the same drive in an internal and external version, hance the same level of accuracy. Do anybody know if this is true?

    Also, I recently bought a hybrid SACD, but all the drives I've tried can only read the CD layer, and not the SACD layer. So, what do I need to rip a SACD? Can the two Blu-Ray drives do that?

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards:
    Aksel Christoffersen

    You can't rip the SACD layer. Sony made sure of that unless you use a Playstation 3 with a certain firmware revision. They upgraded the firmware after it was found out that users could rip the SACD layer, and that update circumvented the ability to do so. If you have a hybrid SACD, you can still rip CD layer.

    Thank you. Do you know the exact firmware version? I know a person WHO owns a Play Station.
