    Best DVD drive for ripping audio CDs

    im building a new pc that will have on-board SATA (currently using IDE) and looking to purchase a DVD drive. i want it to be a good drive for ripping audio CDs. one of my current DVD drives has a feature named "C2 error info" which i believe helps in audio ripping as the extractor does not have to read the data twice. on my short list i have:
    LG GH24NS90.AUAA50B 24x SATA Bare Internal DVD Rewriter - Black
    any suggestions? i read that pioneer are good drives?

    This forum is worth looking at:

    http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/forumdis...p-AccurateRip&

    It is the official forum for dBpoweramp.

    This thread lists the most accurate drives:

    It seems many of the older drives are better for ripping CDs it seems.

    Edit!!

    I would look at this forum:

    The problem is that DVD drive reviews are not common,and many of the drives reviewed have been replaced. A lot of drives are actually clones of one model too.
