The Best CD-Reader
Introduction
Lately we are getting a lot of e-mail asking which CD-Readers are the best for copying SafeDisc, SecuROM or LaserLock protected games without the need for additional patching.

For now only a few CD-Readers are capable in doing this, so we created a list of CD-Readers which successfully copied SafeDisc/SecuROM/LaserLock Protected Games.

In some cases it is better to use the CD-Writer as CD-Reader as it is usually better able to read unreadable sectors.

CD-Reader Overview
Here is an overview of CD-Readers which are capable in successfully creating a CD-Image which doesn't need any patching afterwards.

For now the biggest success rate is achieved with the Teac CD-Readers/CD-Writers in combination with DiscJuggler. The Teac CD-532S seems to be the fastest in creating a working CD-Image.

The latest versions DiscJuggler seem to be much better and about 10x faster in reading unreadable sectors.

NOTE: The information below has been submitted by visitors of the GameCopyWorld, it has not been verified as we don't have all these CD-Readers/Writers ourselves!
