    I've got an LG WH14NS40 currently, and lately Ive been getting a lot of failed reads, DVDs and Blurays.

    On a couple of the errors, MakeMKV says usually is a failing drive.

    Several of them the disc looks in really good condition.

    Anyways, Im thinking about switching to another drive to see if I can increase my reliability.

    Any recommendations?

    Currently considering the

    Pioneer BDR-209DBK
    https://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-Electronics-Internal-Blu-Ray-BDR-209DBK/dp/B00H2GTXKS

    Ive heard good things about Pioneer reliability.

    Any other drives I should be considering?

    When I have issues with MakeMKV its almost always because MakeMKV is out of date. I'm using some ancient Pioneer 6x BD drive.
